The Twenty-eight Parrot is found in Southern and subcoastal Western Australia.
The Mallee Ringneck is found in the Mallee of northwestern Victoria and eastern South Australia north to Dubbo and South-West Queensland.
The Cloncurry Ringneck Parrot can be found in the Channel Country from Lake Eyre in northern South Australia to the South-West of Queensland.
Budgerigars are native to Australia and the only natural color of these birds in the wild is the yellow and green variety.
However other varieties including the English Budgie which is bigger than the native bird, plus the variety of coloured birds are all bred for the purpose of the pet market.
So you cannot expect to find a blue budgie, white budgies or other in the bush.
