Budgies on TV

House Hunters

Doctors’ Dilemma in New York (Season 142, Episode 2).

Surgeon Steven and Geriatrician Stephanie are looking for a new home in Westchester, New York. Steven wants a Craftsman style home with a yard big enough for their dog, Artoo. Stephanie would like a Cape Cod style home with a room just for their budgie, Miso. 

The couple makes the right decision. It’s all about Miso – whom Steven says, thinks his hair is a nest. At the end of the episode, Miso decides to fly out of his room. Typical budgie.

Out and About

Canadian Dave Keeler really loves his budgies. He often takes his birds, Sammy, Melvin and Happy for walks around the neighborhood – and even hangs their cage in a tree at the park.The birds enjoy car rides. “Actually they love a car ride. Just like children, when they’re cooped up they just love to go out,” Keeler said. 

“It’s like anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it,” Keeler said. “And when I see my birds so happy and healthy, they certainly make me happy.”
