My beloved Budgerigar was called “Tuti” and it was a girl. Unfortunately she is not living anymore because someone forgot the window open… and you can imagine what happened next!
But let’s remember the beautiful moments that filed my days. “Tuti was a very pale yellow Budgerigar with red eyes. I liked her features from the first moment I saw her. I thought she was so special between the other colored birds. As I noticed, this color is quite rare. Tuti was the friendliest bird I ever seen and I am not joking when I am saying this. I remember the time when I was writing at my desk and she was approaching me and rested on my shoulder. Sometimes she even sat on my pen!!! I had that time a very think pen and Tuti had enough space to put his little feet. She was a very empathetic bird. I had a friend, an old and blind lady. She wore very big glasses. Tuti was very friendly with her. She sat on glasses frames and nibbles the lady’s eye. I was really frighten when I saw this for the first time but the lady aware me that all is ok and actually Tuti’s touch was very delicate, almost like a massage. I was really amazed by the empathy that Tuti had!
Apart from the great empathy that this breed of birds has, they are really easy to take care of. I fed Tuti with regular food that you can find in Pet Shops. I paid attention at the amount of food because I knew that the Budgerigar can eat a lot and as a consequence they can develop heart diseases. I tried to let her fly as much as possible. I think is very important for their health and I advise all the future owners of Budgerigars to do so.
