Description

Description

Identification: Bourke’s Parakeets (Neopsephotus bourkii) are part of a family of Australian grass parakeets, the Neophemas. Bourke’s parakeets are attractive and unique, with a natural pinkish coloring. The wild Bourke’s parakeets appear in shades of pink, blue, cream and brown. Mature males of the natural color show a blue band of feathers over their ceres. Young birds under nine months of age both male and female look very similar, after this they come into full plumage colour. Wildtype (natural coloured) Bourke's parakeet display a basically brown overall colouration with pink abdomen, pinkish breast and a blue rump. The rosy Bourke’s parakeet mutation (opaline) is generally bright pink. It is common and sought-after mutation because it is so stunning. In the rosy mutation, there is no difference in coloring between the sexes, so DNA-sexing or behavior traits are relied upon to determine sex. Rubino Bourke's are a mutation of Rosy and Lutino Bourke's.

* If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing.
