The good news – Emmy’s quarantine is almost up!
The bad news – Emmy is not ready to join the rest of the flock quite yet.
This little darling is one skittish budgie. I don’t know what her previous owners were doing with her (grabbing her? banging on her cage?), but she is very easily spooked and flaps around the cage if we get too near. It’s going to take some time to tame her, but I’m confident we’ll win her over. Patience pays off!
*Thanks to everyone for the name suggestions!

These adorable knitted budgies by Caroline (mini*thread*teds*). You can find her budgies on ebay.
They come in so many colors (and with or without hats)!
Thanks to Ollie for sharing these cute little Santa budgies!
Today we went to the
Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary‘s holiday toy drive.
We bought a toy for one of the resident birds (don’t tell Cooper) and became members.
I had a great time drinking hot chocolate and petting the birds. These three were very friendly.
There are so many amazing and talented birds in the world that Cooper decided to showcase one every month.
Here is the amazing Snowball (an Eleonora cockatoo) dancing to some holiday favorites.
Snowball has appeared in television commercials and television snows.
This talented bird has been noted as the first (non human) animal proven to be capable of beat induction. You can see more Snowball videos on Youtube.
These small trinket boxes by Limoges.
So cute. And perfect for hiding away a little millet (when you don’t want to share).
Sunny is OBSESSED with the paper towels. She figured out how to go through the “tunnel”. I think she’s trying to turn the tube into a nest and start a little family with Dewey. Here she is in action:
Here is Britney Spears buying a budgie in 2007.
Oops! She did it again. Britney buys another budgie in 2009.
Here’s a closer look at Britney’s budgie.
