Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you today.

Actually, they are just 2 different "breeds" of Budgerigars.

Parakeet is the common term used to describe American Budgies. This breed tends to smaller then their English counterparts. They tend to be the ones we see in pet stores; where English Budgies tend to be the larger breed that is kept by fanciers and those who show birds. It is essentially the same situation as what we see in dog breeds; where our selective breeding has lead to one species showing breed variation.

All the best,

Dr. B.
