Birds - Budgerigars (Budgies).

Stock Photography By Paul Ross

I am in outback Northern Territory, Australia and have come across a bore fed waterhole where I saw thousands of wild Budgies coming in to drink. The Budgerigar is native to Australia and I saw huge numbers swarming overhead and of course their predators, hawks, falcons and kites were there also.
