In this tutorial, we will begin with a new piece of paper and discover how to draw a parakeet in 6 illustrative steps. We will pay attention to the shape and size of each part of the parakeet.
Time Needed: 20 minutes
Create The Base Of The Body
Using your pencil, draw a slightly tilted oval shape leaning to the left in the center of your paper. That will be your base for the parakeet’s body.
Outline The Head
Then, draw a thumb-like shape on the left that will be the bird’s head and neck.
Draw The Eyes And Beak
Draw the eyes first in the middle of the head. Now draw the beak on the left side.
Add The Wings And Tail
Next, detail the wings on the right side of the body. Add the parakeet’s long tail below it.
Draw The Feet
To complete the line drawing, add the feet under its body.
Complete Your Drawing
The parakeet’s shades are a combination of yellow and green, with a dash of pink on the beak and black stripes. Do not be afraid to get creative.

Tiny Curious Birds
The parakeet was originally from Australia, where it is called a budgie. These birds live in Australia, where they prefer nesting in trees rather than creating their own.
Their bodies are small and slender, and their tails are long. There are two toes pointing forward and two toes pointing backward on the bird’s feet. The head of a parakeet can be rotated 180 degrees.
In addition to their curious nature, parakeets love to play with entertaining toys such as puzzles and games. To keep your parakeet as occupied and happy as possible, offer them a variety of entertaining toys.
They are nomadic birds and often move locations in their wild habitat. Parakeets are able to travel hundreds of miles to find water sources.
The parakeet regurgitates its food as a method of feeding its young. You shouldn’t be too worried if your parakeet does this while you’re around. You are their family to them, and they want to treat you like their own.
