Adopted on 2021-08-12
Hello! I`m Bear. An interesting name for a budgie, no? I came in to Mickaboo via the Santa Cruz shelter in June 2021. And I`m pretty sure I`m a girl but you know us budgies, it may still be too early to tell! I am very sweet and even tempered and I love being in the sun. My favorite pastime is gazing out at the trees and feeling the cool breeze in my feathers. I even eat millet out of my foster parent`s hand! I am with my cage mate Frances, but I call out to the other foster budgies throughout the day. Whenever my cage mate gets scared, she seeks me out and huddles close. I am a sweet budgie who is ready for YOUR forever home!
In nature, parakeets (budgerigars) live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single parakeet to a household if there is already at least one parakeet living there. Otherwise, parakeets must be adopted in groups of two or more.
