Transcript of Evolution of Budgerigars

Budgerigar Right now in 2013, the Budgerigar lives in the grasslands of Australia. They have distinctive markings on their head and are found in vivid green colors, some with white patches. They have black bands of stripes on their wings to blend in with the tall grasses and trees. They have hooked beaks to hull the seeds they eat quickly. They have sharp nails and pink feet.

They are extremely intelligent and have excellent eyesight, but are quite weak and small. Budgerigars are friendly and social little animals. They're hearing and sense of smell is weak. But they're eyes can see much better than humans, they can see into a fourth spectrum of light, ultra violet. They can tell if you've been in the sun or not. When they're flying over the grasslands in their huge flocks, they can see every grain of seed on the plains.

They are currently the most popular domestic bird when kept in a household. They have high risk of gaining fatty tumors and such, since seeds are high in fat. They are also prone to bacteria and need stronger immunity systems. Lorigar 1 million years later in 1,002,013, Lorigars now roam the dry, scorching Australian grasslands. The sun has expanded several feet and is now closer to Earth. Most vegetation in Australia is dead and dried and water is scare. Animals are more desperate then ever and competition is high. Many fight are breaking out often.

Lorigars have become more lightly colored with less markings so they blend into the dry earth. They have less dark markings and lighter bands on they're wings. They're eyes scan the dry earth for water. They are becoming more wary of others as the sun get warmer and warmer. Florakeets Another million years later, in 2,002,013, what were known as Lorigars have moved to the jungle. They are now called Florakeets. The Austrailian grasslands have dried out, leaving no home for the birds. They move to the Amazon jungle, which is thriving under the hot sun. Many of their relatives live their, such as various types of parrots, lorikeets, and other exotic birds.

They now have a slightly larger beak to fit with the food of the jungle. They have become accustomed to the exotic jungle fruits and nuts. They have regained their bright, festive colors to match with their bright habitat. They're feathers are now water resistant, as they can now fly and move when damp. 3 A budgie(short for budgerigar)

Period 5 2 1 Junglekeet Over the course of another million years, it is now 3,002,013. The sun has been getting warmer and warmer. The jungle, however, is still thriving, as the sunlight supports tree growth. Hundred of new berries and seed have been discovered. These birds are still thriving in the jungle. Some have still remained companions of humans, as they were before.

The Junglekeet is now what we used to called the budgerigar. They have grown in size, almost twice as large as before, now a bit smaller than the size of a cockatiel. They're wings, eyes, beak, organs have all also expanded in size. They can hear and smell better, though eyesight is still dominant. They can fly faster, up to 70 miles per hour, as opposed to 40 miles per hour before. They are now omnivores, eating insects as well as fruits, veggies and seeds found in the tropical forests. These animals have evolved into a thriving species, and are not a easily challenged as they were before. 4 Thank You for Watching Markings Good Eyesight Vibrant Color Bigger Body Jungle Habitat Water-proof
