One love that I’ve had my whole life is an adoration for birds. This is my little budgerigar Opium. He’s an incredibly intelligent, talkative little guy.


Budgies rely primarily on their sight, which is far better than ours and also encompasses the ultraviolet spectrum. In the US, budgerigars are called parakeets, and the companionship that these little creatures can provide is often overlooked. I myself was surprised to learn that parakeets are the smallest parrot in the world and rank among the top mimicking birds. They’re known for their beautiful voices, large vocabularies and natural tendency to mash up learned words and phrases.
