I have had several budgerigars, and I liked them all. Is it relatively easy to take care of and doesn't have many special needs. I think visually it is a beautiful bird that is appealing to the eye. It does not mimic human sounds and words perfectly, but does respond and is active toward the people it lives among in general. I find it very nice to have a bird like the budgerigar around.
In my opinion, there are few downsides to this great animal. It can be quite noisy sometimes, however, I think this is common with all birds. It, of course, just varies in degree and severity.
