Description The most widespread feral parrot in Florida is the Budgerigar, which is native to the interior of Australia. It is usually known as the parakeet and is commonly bred commercially for sale in pet stores. The distribution and breeding biology of these feral parrots in Florida is well established. Feral populations of this bird range as far north as Gainsville in the northern part of the state. Budgerigars are nomadic birds found in open habitats, primarily in scrub-land, open woodland, and grasslands. They usually nest in the cavities of pine trees. The birds are normally found in small flocks, but can form very large flocks under favorable conditions. The species is extremely nomadic, and the movement of the flocks is tied to the availability of food and water. Drought can drive flocks into more wooded habitat or coastal areas. They feed on the seeds of spinifex, grass weeds, and sometimes ripening wheat.

At eight years old in the late 50’s, I started private training in traditional oil techniques. To this day, I owe my appreciation to my mother, who has since passed away. Through considerable personal sacrifice, she nurtured my artistic talent and provided me with the tools and circumstances to begin my creative journey - the journey that I still follow. I cherish the memories of the art exhibits and museums that we visited in Manhattan. I later attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71). During the 70's and up until the late 80's, I exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. Presently, I reside in Florida with my loving wife, who I've been married to for thirty years. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, I turned to creating digital hand painted images and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that I had once found in oils. - Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz)
