Also referred to as the bee bee or pocket parrot, the canary-winged parakeet is very intelligent, affectionate and family orientated. The canary-winged parakeet is a very common house pet, but also has a large range of over 640,000 square kilometers in the wild. In captivity, these are charming birds that often have a close relationship with their human handlers. The parakeet is a semi-noisy bird and can mimic different sounds. They are known as a very gregarious species, living in tiny or large groups. A group of parakeets is known as a ā€¯chatter”or a “flock” of parakeets.
