Ozzie, Alfie and Sido were all adopted from our local rescues and Sunny, Emmy, Gordie, Lera, Felix and Harvey are all rehomed (Craigslist). They have brought so much joy and love into our lives.
If you are thinking of adding a bird to your family, please consider adopting. These birds have so much to give and deserve a second chance at a loving, forever home.
Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption event, takes place today.
Both Alfie and Ozzie were adopted from the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services. We really hit the jackpot with these two wonderful little budgies.
This year we lost a dear friend, Frances Sondra Appleby. Sondra had a love for budgies and often commented on Cooper’s posts throughout the years (as Sondra, Ollie, SPBudgie, and/or SweetPea Budgie). She always had lovely things to say about the flock and was there to celebrate the good times and to offer support during the bad. Today would have been her 67th birthday. Even though we never met in person, we miss her dearly.
Here she is with her darling budgie, Sweet Pea, and with our budgies Alfie, Dewey, Gordie and Lera. I hope they are all together in paradise – happy and at peace.
Clear the Shelters Day is tomorrow. Our local news has been promoting the event by sharing photos of viewers’ pets. Of course, I had to send in a photo of Ozzie and Alfie.

And they made it on the news (video below)! How exciting! If you are thinking about adding a bird to your family, please consider adopting.
