Takara Introduces New Breezy Singers

Parakeets Round out Takara’s Collection of Articulated, Chirping Birds

Parakeets photoTwo new Parakeets – one blue and one yellow – have joined the flock of lifelike Breezy Singers songbirds from Takara. These birds of a feather will turn your home into an animated indoor aviary. The lovely cage-birds join the collection of mechanically articulated songbirds that chirp in their natural “voice” when you approach.

So intent on making these birds as lifelike as possible, Takara has fitted each beautifully carved bird with a microchip of real parakeet sounds obtained from the Cornell School of Ornithology so the chirping you hear is the actual live recordings of this particular bird. The parakeets, as well as others in the Breezy Singer collection, come with a built-in on/off switch so you can admire your finely feathered friends without the sound feature.

Fitted with a motion sensor, the Breezy Singer Parakeets sit quietly until someone is near. The bird then tilts its head inquisitively, bobs its tail, and greets visitors with a chorus of delightful chirps.

Joining the American Robin, Northern Cardinal, Eastern Bluebird, Blue Jay, American Goldfinch and Yellow Warbler, Scarlet Tanager and Common Yellow Throat are the friendly “domesticated” parakeets. For bird lovers, we have included descriptive information about our latest additions to the Breezy Singer collection.

The Parakeet
(Melopittacus Undulatus)

The parakeet, also known as the Budgeigar (or “Budgie”), is the most popular cage-bird kept throughout the world. Populations of escaped birds have established themselves in some areas, particularly southern Florida. Parakeets naturally occur in Australia where they are one of the most common wild bird species. They can be found throughout the continent, often in enormous flocks said to sometimes blacken the sky. Though breeders have created a wide range of color varieties, wild parakeets share a typical coloration. This consists of an emerald green underside, a yellow and black barred back and head, a yellow face and a blue-green tail.

Breezy Singers operate on three LR44 batteries. Suggested Retail Price: $14.99. Each parakeet comes with its own perch for display. Each parakeet sold separately.

Breezy Singers from Takara…definitely not the same old song!
