The moustached parakeet has an extensive range in southeast Asia. It is native to China and the islands of Indonesia, where several subspecies live. This bird has an unmistakably deafening warning calling when danger approaches. During the mating season, a pair will leave the flock and find a tree cavity to call home until their chicks mature. Feral populations are spreading to many other areas, including neighboring cities. Their shrinking natural habitat causes flocks to become urban dwellers. In the wild, this species tends to live in woodlands, hills, and mountains and gather in flocks of up to 60 birds. The group can become quite loud, so it’s hard to miss them.

Moustache parakeet for Adoption

Moustached parakeets can make adorable pets when hand-fed as babies and properly socialized. However, they do tend to be more relaxed than the boisterous Indian ringneck parakeet Some owners of moustached parakeets report that their birds tend to act bossy or needy. They will demand an owner’s attention if they feel ignored. They are active, social creatures who love to spend time playing games and spend time with their owners.

    Their birds are very beautiful and nice. They take a lot of time to have the best quality of birds and the best personality of birds. I can tell they really love what they do and I highly recommend them. I got my baby Moustache Parakeet from them and he is the sweetest little bird on the planet!

    I cannot express how pleased I am with these guys. I’ve personally watched how well these birds are treated and raised. The owners are very knowledgeable and extremely willing to share all that knowledge to ensure you have a successful relationship with your new friend.

    J’ai acheté une belle caique de bébé pour ma fille ici. Ces oiseaux sont très soignés et le meilleur que vous puissiez obtenir. La volière mise en place est parmi les mieux vues et donc très propres. Leur service client est de premier ordre, si serviable et patient avec mes NOMBREUSES questions. Très informé. Vous ne regretterez pas d’avoir acheté votre prochain ajout de famille d’oiseaux ici. Vous obtiendrez un oiseau très heureux et en bonne santé! Vous pouvez dire que ce n’est tout simplement pas un «passe-temps» a timies Birds, mais une passion pour ces oiseaux. Je serai un client fidèle pour ma fille et moi-même. Merci d’avoir offert à notre famille une si belle expérience!
