Meet Bubba!Bubba lives with Andrea.I’m a sleek, twitchy and spoiled bird, my favorite food is millet and for 2 months after coming home I refused to eat anything else. Then I got a friend! A little green and yellow guy came to live with me and I became so happy!!! I made silly chirping sounds and we immediately became attached. I also started eating more than just millet and I like to show my little brother around.My favorite toy is a rope hanging from a coconut that I like to preen, and I love to sleep on the highest perch or sometimes the cuttlebone.
This month’s movie is Zambezia.Zambezia is the animated adventure of Kai, a young falcon who sets out from his sheltered life to find the famed bird city of Zambezia. In the city he befriends Zoe, a kite and Ezee, a nightjar. Kai learns the truth about his origins and joins the Hurricanes, the defenders of the bird city.Cooper enjoyed the flight scenes and the ending, where the birds outwit and defeat the treacherous marabou storks and egg eating leguaans (monitor lizards).Cooper was thrilled that the movie showcased so many types of birds. She was disappointed that none of them were budgies. She thinks if there is a sequel it should take place in Australia.
Alexander Jansson – The Legend of Budgie Bartok.
We don’t always get the Cooper’s photos right on the first shot*. Here are some pics that didn’t make the cut.
Two toys this month – The “Cute Little Toy” from Pet Terrific and the “Tropical Lily” from Scooter Z’s. Here’s Gordie. None of the birds have played with this toy yet, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. It has knots! And bells!Here’s Ozzie. This is a toy the boys like to talk to. Especially Alfie. He had a long conversation with it yesterday.
Gordie moved into the big cage today.He seems to be doing pretty well. He’s been keeping to himself, but has been chirping and investigated one of the toys. He sticks to one spot and avoids the other budgies, but I’m hoping they’ll all warm up to each other quickly.Emmy came out of the cage and bonked into a wall. Eesh. She seems to be doing better flying around, though. It helps to have Ozzie show her how to navigate the room.Emmy moved to the quarantine cage. Just until I finger tame her. It’s impossible to do in the big cage. Ozzie will visit and sleep there (and show her that stepping up is easy). As soon as Emmy moves back into the big cage, it will be Lera’s turn to meet the budgies. Jeez, we have a lot of budgies!
