Hello All: i'm not sure if this has been adressed before, but we just put a Christmas tree which has a very strong odor (Balsam fir). Although it is great for the holidays, i know that budgies are sensitive to smells and balsam fir is probably not native to where ever budgies originated.
Should I be concerned?

Yes, it is a horrible danger on par with keeping teflon coated pans in the kitchen. For all that is Holy, GET YOUR BIRD TO AN AVIAN VET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!
Just having fun. No there is no danger. Other than the budge getting into the tree and playing with the ornaments and lights :-)

Your right about the teflon pans. I realize that burning telflon is bad but then again it is bad for humans.
Actually our bird seems to be afraid of the tree. He likes to make laps around the house but avoids the tree.

Actually, I was also poking fun at the teflon fear-mongers, to whom science is as foriegn as is algebra to an armidillo.

I agree with Dave on the teflon. We've used teflon with no ill effects on any of our birds.
BTW, is there a connection between budgies and bbq's here?...

None.. well, I never check the brisket and pork shoulder in the pit with Bubba (budgie) or Dill (parrotlet) on my shoulder; and both fids love pulled-pork.
