Everybody is interested in what is happening in Athens these days where the Olympic
games take place. Most people haven't even heard about the Budgie Olympics that are being
held during the same time in the tiny town of Psittaculoniki in Greece which is too small
to be shown on any map.
Like us humans, budgies from all of the world took part in games where the best of them won their "tickets" to Psittaculoniki. Never before in the history of the Budgie Olympic games were the feathered athletes as fit as today. Birds Online invites you to have a look at what the birds are doing over there in Greece.
They are a must for each contest: the referees. In Psittaculoniki, they guarantee fair play and objective voting.
