John Audubon Parakeets - Modgy Expandable Vase

John Audubon Parakeets - Modgy Expandable Vase

Modgy Expandable flower vases do everything a glass vase does except collect dust, chip or break. Available in a variety of designs, Modgy plastic vases are durable and stable enough to hold a flower bouquet. These decorative vases are ideal for events, weddings, and any table top. Modgy vases are collapsible and economical, making it easy to keep a variety of colors and patterns tucked away for any occasion. 

In the early 19th century, John J. Audubon sounded the alarm about habitat loss and climate change. From spotting and painting birds over the years, he noted that already in 1816, “Our Parakeets are very rapidly diminishing…where twenty-five years ago they were plentiful, scarcely any are now to be seen.” The Carolina Parakeet - the only parrot native to the U.S. - became extinct in 1920.

The species lives on in Audubon’s brilliant watercolor, as a pandemonium of parakeets jostle together in squawking harmony. They remind us to appreciate and cherish our fragile ecosystem.
