Cooper’s Bloopers

What? No bloopers? Cooper has become such a super little model that we didn’t have any bloopers this month. So instead, here are some pics of the flock opening wide and saying, “Ahhh.” Or, “ACK!”



Game Time!

Three of our flock look a lot alike. Can you tell them apart?11. Cooper, Gordie or Ozzie?

Cooper has a light blue cere and is our only budgie with a band on her leg.
Gordie has larger throat spots than Ozzie. And not that you can see, but Ozzie has a little white patch on the back of his head.

I Scream, You Scream

We all scream for budgie ice cream??icJapan’s Torimi cafe is serving up budgie ice cream (other flavors are cockatiel and java sparrow). The ice cream is not made from the birds, but is a combination of what the birds eat and the flavor of the birds. “Parakeet” has a vanilla ice cream base with honey, apple and grains blended in. According to Torimi cafe, “It’s like eating some vanilla ice cream in one hand, and then taking a whiff of a parakeet in your other hand.”SONY DSCThe ice cream was so successful, Torimi added ice cream sandwiches to the line. They can only make 20 batches at a time and are having trouble keeping up with demand.icsandWould you like to try budgie ice cream? deweyPhoto of Dewey from July 2012.

Dewey Day

Today would have been Dewey’s second birthday. So in his honor, we decided to proclaim February 15th “Dewey Day”.gymSo today, kiss your budgie (if you’re lucky enough to have one), sing a little song, or indulge in a special treat. Harry and I are going to have oatmeal cookies (Dewey loved his oats).
