If you like your birds from Australia, you’ll want to consider the budgie. This affectionate nickname is short for Budgerigar. A brilliant green and yellow, the gentle yet gregarious budgie has a great personality and makes a fantastic pet. He’s certainly worth your consideration and definitely your love!

Lots of different names in aboriginal language. Budgerygah is another. The aboriginals would track the birds breeding patterns, and when the fledglings left the nest, and were nice and plump, they would catch them before they could fly. They would cook them much like the kangaroo, burying them under hot coals and letting the feathers singe away.

In finnish the word budgie is undulaatti. I suppose the finnish word comes from the swedish word undulat which means also budgie.
