Our budgies love chew logs. Harry takes off the twine and fastens the log to a piece of wood with a screw. This way, it’s stable and more of the birds have access.

Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption event, takes place today. Nearly 20,000 pets found a forever home at last year’s drive. Both Alfie and Ozzie were adopted from the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services. Sido was adopted from the Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary.If you’re thinking of adding a pet to your family, please consider adoption. There are many pets in the shelters and rescues who need loving homes.
We received a package the other day from Kelle, John and their flock. Inside were some of the budgies’ favorite things. Millet and marshmallows (what we call shreddable kabobs).And an absolutely amazing framed cross stitch of the flock.I couldn’t believe it! It’s our flock (and in the order they joined the family). The detail is amazing (Emmy’s one white cheek, the spot-on colors). And I teared up when I saw the little halos on Dewey and Gordie – and Gordie’s gold star. I’m going to treasure this forever. A thousand thank yous for this amazing gift. Love to you and your flock!
The flock had a wonderful Christmas. Of course, there was millet.Here is Emmy creeping up on a toy sent by Steven.This toy is from Craig. Alfie’s expression cracks me up.Adam sent a gift card – Cooper is wondering why I’m not at the store using it RIGHT NOW.Lera on a big vine ball toy. The photo is blurry as she is a little whirlwind of action.Sido beak deep in one of her toys.The flock (and I) want to thank our friends for being so thoughtful. You’re the best!XO,
Cooper and the flock
