The Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus), (parakeet, shell parakeet, budgerigah, budgie, or common pet parakeet in US English) is a small parrot belonging to the tribe of the broad-tailed parrots (Platycercini); sometimes considered a subfamily (Platycercinae). It is the only species in the Australian genus Melopsittacus and sometimes isolated in a tribe of its own, the Melopsittacini, although it is probably quite closely related to Pezoporus and Neophema.
