Hi Hans,

There are a few aviculturists who breed bush budgies in Australia - and one of the characteristics is their size. A true bush budgie rarely weighs over 30 grams, while it is unusual to get a domestic budgie less then 45 grams, with some being up towards 70 grams or more.

Otherwise your photos seem to be similar to those bush budgies I have seen in aviaries and in the wild.
