Budgies, the most popular of all pet birds, live happily in the companionship of humans.

But in the wild, these tiny parrots seek each other out, often gathering in astonishing numbers in search of food and water.

This video captures one of the largest flocks of budgerigars ever seen in Australia’s outback. It’s a super swarm comprising millions of birds – a great green cloud pitching and wheeling in astounding gyrations above the grassland.

Coloured Budgerigar Coin

The second coin in our new Birds of Australia silver coin series celebrates these amazing Aussie natives. Affectionate feathered friends beloved in homes throughout the world, they’re also amazingly athletic acrobats who’ve survived arid Australian conditions for millions of years.
