Budgerigars, often referred to as "budgies", are small parakeets from Australia that were first introduced to Britain in 1840. The budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) is one of the smallest members of the parrot family. The name "budgerigar" is derived from the Aboriginal word "bet-cher-gah" which means "good to eat", although they are no longer eaten.
