This month’s book is The Adventures of Pluffo the Parakeet, by Jean Austin-Long.
Little Pluffo is content with his new cage, toys, family and watching the birds in the yard. But after talking to the English Sparrow about freedom, Pluffo decides he is sad and unfulfilled. An open door leads to Pluffo’s chance at freedom and he takes it.
But the outside world can be dangerous. After an encounter with Tommy Cat, Pluffo decides that life with a loving family isn’t so bad. Especially when they bring home another little parakeet, Fifi.
Cooper thought this was a cute little book. She thought that the encounters with both the sticky cake batter and Tommy Cat were frightening, and was glad that someone was there to help. She liked reading about the different birds in the yard and about Pluffo’s shiny red bell. Cooper loves a happy ending, so she was happy that Pluffo ended up with a mate (and eggs!).
Cooper wants to thank her friends Kelle and John for sending her this book. XO
I came across these stunning photos of parrotlets Winter, Sprig, River and Rain by Rupa Sutton, and had to share. You can see more of them here and on Instagram. Prints are available on Etsy.
Look what came in the mail!
It’s a little silver budgie medal I found on ebay. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it. Maybe put it in a frame?
Cooper would like to know why her medal isn’t gold…
Just in time for March Madness!
It’s the ActiviToys Basketball by J.W. Pet Company.
The budgies were wary of this one, so I put some millet in the basket.
That seemed to do the trick.
Now we just need two more budgies for our female Basketbird team.
