I don’t know how he trained these budgies. They are very clever and cute. Our budgie rules the household not the other way around. Australian native birds that have been successfully exported and bred all over the world. In the wild they are green and yellow and out west you see flocks of thousands. They are beautiful to watch and very noisy you can hear them coming from a long way away and they look like a huge wave in the sky.
The budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) (pron.: /ˈbʌdʒərɨɡɑr/), also known as common pet parakeet or shell parakeet and informally nicknamed the budgie, is a small, long-tailed, seed-eating parrot. Budgerigars are the only species in the Australian genus Melopsittacus, and are found wild throughout the drier parts of Australia where the species has survived harsh inland conditions for the last five million years. Budgerigars are naturally green and yellow with black, scalloped markings on the nape, back, and wings, but have been bred in captivity with colouring in blues, whites, yellows, greys, and even with small crests. Budgerigars are popular pets around the world due to their small size, low cost, and ability to mimic human speech. The origin of the budgerigar’s name is unclear. The species was first recorded in 1805, and today is the most popular pet in the world after the domesticated dog and cat.
The budgerigar is closely related to the lories and the fig parrots. They are one of the parakeet species, a non-taxonomical term that refers to any of a number of small parrots with long, flat and tapered tails. In both captivity and the wild, budgerigars breed opportunistically and in pairs.
Here is an interesting historical fact that you probably didn’t know. Just have a look at the calendar for the month of September 1752.
(If you think I’m joking, you may search it on Google and see it for yourself.)
In case you haven’t noticed, 11 days are simply missing from the month.
So, the workers worked for 11 days less that month, but got paid for the whole month. That’s how the concept of “paid leave” was born. Hail the King!!!
In the Roman Julian Calendar, April used to be the first month of the year; but the Gregorian Calendar observed January as the first month. Even after shifting to the Gregorian Calendar, many people refused to give up old traditions and continued celebrating 1st April as the New Year’s Day.
When simple orders didn’t work, the King finally issued a royal dictum; which stated that those who celebrated 1st April as the new year’s day would be labelled as fools.
From then on, 1st April became April Fool’s Day. History !
Has anyone else had the people they follow dropped from their list? I accidentally clicked on followers today and noticed that blogs I have been following for ages had ‘follow’ beside them not ‘following’. I was quite shocked as I love reading my regular bloggers.
Is it a glitch in WordPress ?
I would be interested to hear if it’s happened to anyone else.
This advertisement is amazing, the technology is improving all the time. It’s a great idea this driverless car.
However I did wonder what would happen if :
1) You lost your phone or had it stolen? How would you find your car if you didn’t know where it had parked itself?
2) How does it know not to park in a No Parking Space, Disabled Car Space, or Parents with Prams Car Space?
3) What happens if there is more than one driverless car going for the last parking space? Do cars have road rage?
3) What happens if it runs away from home and doesn’t come back? Just asking
My thoughts and prayers are with all those in the path of this destructive storm. It’s frightening to think that over 60 million people will be affected. Once the devastation of the storm is over, there will be so much for people to repair. Let us hope there is no loss of life.
