Budgies love to do impressions.Can you guess who Cooper is?She is wearing blue, so Harry’s guess of Spock would be logical – but as she’s in charge of the crew, she’s Captain Kirk (or Captain Coop!).Those troublesome tribbles!

This month’s book is 2 Many Parakeets by Raymond Mullikin.In 2 Many Parakeets, Rainbow the budgie’s life changes when a new bird moves in. Though Rainbow was lonely, he is not too sure about the new addition. Eddie tries to make friends, but Rainbow wants nothing to do with him. Eddie doesn’t give up though, and manages to find Eddie in all of his hiding spots. Will Rainbow ever accept Eddie as a friend?Cooper loved the big, colorful illustrations and rhyming text in this book. She liked that the budgies had the run of the house, but wasn’t too keen on the fly that Eddie wanted to share (she would much rather have millet). Eddie and Rainbow are real birds and there are photos of them at the end of the book. While Cooper doesn’t think there is such a thing as 2 many parakeets, she enjoyed the story and was glad the budgies became pals at the end.
On March 12th, we took Lera to the vet for a beak trim. Thirty days later, we had to take her back for another. She’s always chewing, so it’s amazing how quickly it grew back.
Not pictured – Harvey (who was there for moral support). The vet tech clipped off the end then filed it down with a dremel. I couldn’t watch – but Lera handled it like a trooper. Hopefully it won’t grow again. If it does, she might need some tests to make sure she doesn’t have an underlying illness.
