This is not a report about birds I've seen, but a question about birds you see.
In the Netherlands I try to breed Budgerigars that are, as far as possible in
our climate and in an aviary, equal to the Budgerigars that fly free in your
Australian Bush. Hence the term Bush-Budgies.We even try to have a group
devoted Budgie Breeders.
Now the first thing needed is a correct description of the wild feathered
birds. We found a description in the book of Cayley, "Budgerigars in Bush and
Aviary", but that's from 1935. See www.bush-budgies.net or www.bush-budgies.nl.
Now I search for an Australian bird watcher that has time and is willing to
check this up to modern bird viewing standards. And eventually add other
qualities that are necessary to see if we are on the yellow road to succes.
