Amerillo is a very delightful pet to have around. A lot of people dismiss budgies as 'boring' but once you get to know them they're wonderful! She is named for the Spanish word for yellow, "amarillo." She always wants to be with the bigger birds (my Cockatiels Peeper and Skeeter) and steals their food and perches.
She is quite smart, knows how to flutter up and down the stairs and follow people around! Sometimes Amerillo can be very annoying, as she imitates the cockatiels' calls very loudly. She is a bit of a pig, if I give her a bit of food she always wants more 'til she's about to explode.
When she gets into an attitude it is quite amusing. She bites harder than both larger birds combined and likes to throw little objects everywhere or rip toys to shreds. It's like a toddler throwing a tantrum.
Something I love about her is she doesn't get angry or ticked off if you don't play with her one day. She sings her lovely mangled-sounding bird noises, and keeps singing even if she's been stuck in her cage bored all day. I love her very much!
