We don’t always get Cooper’s photos right on the first shot*. Here are some pics that didn’t make the cut.* Due to the photographer and through no fault of the model, of course.
This month’s movie is March of the Penguins.Since it’s March, Cooper decided to review March of the Penguins. This documentary depicts a year in the life cycle of the emperor penguin. The penguins leave their ocean hunting grounds and trek 70 miles to their breeding grounds. There they mate, and the female lays an egg. The male and female take turns watching the chick and making the journey back to the sea to feed. All the while they must brave freezing temperatures, blizzards, hunger and predators.This was an educational and entertaining film. The cinematography was beautiful and Morgan Freeman was the perfect narrator. There were some heartbreaking moments in the movie – not all the penguins survived. What these penguins have to overcome is amazing. Cooper’s favorite part of the film were the baby chicks – they were adorable. She thinks that penguins are fascinating (almost as fascinating as budgies) and highly recommends this film.
Every Spring hundreds of pets such as birds, rabbits, hamsters, chicks, and more, are abandoned by families who tire of them after the thrill of Easter Sunday is over.

This month’s book is Did You Know I Love You? by Christa Pierce.In Did You Know That I Love You?, Bird lets her friend Fox know how much she loves him. Through her kisses, hugs and even a mug of warm tea, Bird shows Fox that her love is “for you, and it will always be.”Cooper thought this book, with its bright, whimsical illustrations, was very sweet. She was very happy to see the star of the book was a little blue bird. Cooper recommends this book to anyone looking for a story of friendship and unconditional love.

Cooper and the flock can’t wait to be friends!
This month’s toy is “do it yourself”!I 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! They still squabble over the same one though. Sigh.Ozzie’s birthday toy finally arrived in the mail. It’s the “small jellyfish” by Lucky Bird Toys.
