Good things come in small packages…
Wise words from APOLAPETS.
The budgie aviary at the Turtle Back Zoo in Essex County New Jersey.
The aviary houses approximately 500 budgies.
Visitors can feed the birds with seed sticks.
Love and thanks to our friend Adam Sullens for the photographs. Hopefully we’ll be able to visit the birds (and Adam) in the future.
Budgies and Brunch
The Garden Cafe in Yuma, Arizona.
I came across this restaurant online. They have bird aviaries – with budgies (which are not on the menu)!
Here is their website – due to the pandemic, check to see if they’re open.
We will definitely have to stop by the next time we’re in Arizona!
In a study published by the journal Science, it was found that female budgies prefer intelligence in a mate.
In experiments, select males were trained to open a box containing treats. Other males were not. The females were able to choose between males who could open the treat boxes and males who could not. The females overwhelmingly chose the males who could solve the puzzle, even if they had previously been passed over as mates.
Actual mating was never observed – so it is not clear whether the new male were chosen by the females to mate with or were just to be friend zoned. You can read more about the study here.
I sometimes worry that something might happen to us while we’re out and about. What would happen to the flock? So I made these to keep in our wallets just in case.

So true! This cross stitch was made by Cooper’s friend, Kelle (thanks Kelle!). She also made the cross stitch of our flock.
Kelle has a store on Etsy, where you can contact her for a customized budgie cross stitch of your very own.
