Larry the Bird

Larry sang songs frequently, or whistled, I suppose, but never quite got his pronunciation in line with what it takes to talk. We never tried to teach him anything, which seems like a mistake at this point. Larry had several mates and seems to like the company. They jumped around the cage and communicated in their own way. However, all of Larry’s mates expired and we honestly do not know if it was a coincidence or if Larry played a part. After doing a little research, it appears that budgies (this type of Parakeet) generally get along, but sometimes like to fight. That may be a good reason to check into the matter a bit further before keeping multiple parakeets in the same cage.
