In the spotlight – Ozzie!

ozzieOzzie – our first rescue bird. Ozzie is the one who will answer you with a chirp. He and Sunny like to play “let’s not go back in the cage.” Double trouble! But after a few rounds of “you can’t get me!”, he’ll step up and go back in (Sunny will then follow). He’s everyone’s friend and is an all around good budgie. We love you little Oz!

New Toy – March

This month’s toy is “do it yourself”!footieI took apart a kabob (or marshmallows, as we call them), and used some leather cord and plastic beads (leftovers from past toys) and strung them together to make footie toys. Instead of one toy that the budgies fight over, I have several footie toys. Everyone gets their own! coopsThey still squabble over the same one though. Sigh.oztoyOzzie’s birthday toy finally arrived in the mail. It’s the “small jellyfish” by Lucky Bird Toys.

Keeping Cool

We’ve been having a bit of hot weather in San Diego. To beat the heat the budgies have been playing in the water.

Alfie is always the first to the food. He was more about the lettuce (as you can see from the ever present food on his beak). w2Cooper was the only one who was really into the watermelon. Yum!w1
