1095 days of Sunny

Yet another budgie “joined the flock” anniversary. Well, January is adopt a budgie month…

Three years ago, we brought home this little lemon head. She was for sale on craigslist.

2013nb120142s201515s2016s16Sunny went from a frightened little bird to a sweet, curious budgie. She is crazy about baths, paper towel tubes and exploring little hidey holes. Her current favorite activity is crawling in and under the bird cage cover (when it’s crumpled on a table). Ozzie is her partner in crime and friend with “benefits”. Every once in awhile I’ll find that the bird on my shoulder is Sunny. She is a shining example that you should never give up on finger taming your budgie. It may takes months (and months and months. And months.), especially if you are working with a rehomed or rescue budgie. But there is no feeling quite like winning over the trust of a budgie. Especially when he or she is as wonderful as out little Sunnerbunners.

Happy anniversary Sunny- we love you!

In the spotlight – Sunny!

sunnyShe really is a little ray of sunshine. Our Sunnerbunners is the sweetest little budgie. She’s come such a long way since we first brought her home. It took a loooong time for her to trust us enough to step up. When she’s out of the cage, it’s rare for her to step up – unless she’s on the far right side on top. Then it’s okay : ). Sunny loves to throw things off the top of the cage. I have to be careful what I put there, or a seed or water dish will be upended. And she LOVES her bath. She rolls around like a little puppy. Video of that soon to come!
