Here’s what the boys are up to:
I didn’t have time to work on a post for today, so here’s a little video of Sunny (kind of) playing with the rings. She was weaving in and out of them until she saw the camera…
And here’s a photo of the flock. Ozzie and Felix are jockeying for position. Emmy kept hiding behind the play gym. Harvey wouldn’t face the camera and Alfie was falling asleep. This was the best we could do. Hopefully one day I’ll get a nice, clear shot of them all together.
Ozzie and Felix would like some female companionship.
We keep the divider in to keep the boys from the girls (we don’t want any more egg drama), but we do let them all out together – with supervision.
Ozzie and Emmy:
Ozzy and Sunny are also a couple, but Sunny has recently allowed Harvey to woo her – Ozzie is not sure what to make of this new development.
And the cheese stands alone. Alfie is single and ready to mingle if there are any takers out there. He is a great catch!
Here is some footage of Lera.

Sipping water. Someone is naughty at the end. Literally.
Back from the vet and ready to rejoin her friends:
Lera and her flock sharing a meal:
Millet and toys! What more does a birdie want?
*sorry about the crappy phone photos – hopefully our camera will be back from the shop soon
Harvey and Sunny feasting on millet.Emmy with a new toy.Ozzie (who is having a rough moult) with one of the trees. The budgies got two so they wouldn’t squabble. Too much.Here is Cooper with the other tree.And Sido with one of her new toys.
Has it been 5 years already? Time is certainly flying by. Cooper and the flock want to thank all their friends who come by the blog or check facebook to see what they’re up to.Here’s to another 5 years. Or more!
Our budgies love chew logs. Harry takes off the twine and fastens the log to a piece of wood with a screw. This way, it’s stable and more of the birds have access.

Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption event, takes place today. Nearly 20,000 pets found a forever home at last year’s drive. Both Alfie and Ozzie were adopted from the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services. Sido was adopted from the Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary.If you’re thinking of adding a pet to your family, please consider adoption. There are many pets in the shelters and rescues who need loving homes.
