Budgerigars (commonly referred to as "parakeets'' or "budgies'') are quiet, intelligent, nondestructive birds that are easy to care for. They are the most popular and numerous of companion birds because of their relatively gentle, gregarious and entertaining personalities. They do not tend to bond with an individual person and frequently interact with all family members. Budgerigars are capable of developing a large vocabulary (perhaps 200-300 words), but some effort must be made to accomplish this, and their voice is not as clear as other pet bird species. Some individuals are also good at whistling.
