Budgerigars typically drink during the morning, consuming up to 5.5% of their body weight daily! But living in an arid environment they’re very 'water hardy'. If there’s no standing water nearby, they'll drink early morning dew and ‘bathe’ in wet grass.

A Budgerigar’s beak and flexible tongue is perfectly suited to its granivorous diet. The bird eats seeds, grains and nuts from native herbs and grasses.
Foraging on the ground, they sometimes climb tussocks to strip plants. They then de-husk the seeds and swallow them whole or broken. After drinking and eating, they seek shade in the middle of the day.
While resting, budgies take great care in preening each other. A highly social bird, they call to each other constantly with a distinctive ‘chirruping’ noise.
Budgerigars are monogamous and mate for life. Breeding occurs at any time of the year, typically after rain. The nests, sometimes within metres of each other, are made by lining existing cavities of tree trunks, branches, logs and even old fence posts!
Here the female will lay four to eight eggs. The mother incubates the eggs, which hatch after 18 days; the father forages and feeds the chicks, which will leave the nest after another 35 days.
