        INTRODUCED - Escaped birds
            SCRUB FORESTS (noamdic)
 
   The Budgerigar is an Australian native and a popular caged bird. They have escaped and have established a breeding population along the west coast of Florida and in other localities in Florida. However, the species is not really cold-hardy. Sightings in other areas are probably of lone escaped cage birds that will not survive the winter.
