Artist's Description

The red-rumped parakeet is the most suitable pet bird within this genus of grass parakeets. Red-rumped parakeets are animated and active. Male red-rumped parakeets are iridescent green with a yellow breast and a red rump at the end of their dark blue-green tail feathers. Females are a dull olive-green color which sets them apart from the males. Mutations include cinnamon, lutino, pied, opaline, blue, silver and albino as well as mutations combining of these colours. Opaline – means the same as Opalescent – Opal Glass a semi translucent glass made by adding fluorides… Amazing how they come up with the names for mutations in birds…
I’m Definitely Not Plain… I’m Opalescent – Opaline Red Rump Parakeet

A red-rumped parakeet’s diet is similar to a hookbill’s. The red-rumped parakeet enjoys fruits, such as apple and pear. They also enjoy vegetables like carrots, corn and peas along with dark green leafy foods, such as spinach and kale. Red-rumped parakeets and other small hookbills enjoy an occasional feeding of whole-grain snacks that are low in salt, sugar or oils. Try plain rice cakes, toasted oat and puffed grain cereal. This species of pet bird is sexually dimorphic; however, mutations have developed with these birds in captivity.
