Toys! Toys! Toys!

Our friends Kelle and John recently made a trip to San Diego, and they brought all sorts of toys for the flock.

Sido wasn’t sure about the straw toy at first…

Getting closer…She finally got close enough to test it out. Cooper couldn’t wait until Sido was out of her cage to play with it.

Ozzie found his happy place.Sunny with the broom toy.

Ozzie with pineapple.

Harvey with the jangly bell toy. This will be fun to sing to (He usually sings to the perch caps).

Emmy with the balsa wood toy (which was very popular).And everybirdies’ favorite – marshmallows! I usually split them up so that they can share (ha ha) more easily. Sunny says, “Back off”.

Felix likes the marshmallows, the camera – not so much.Ozzie being photogenic.Of course, the toys were a big hit with the birds. As Cooper says, “You can never have too many toys”. Many thanks to Kelle and John for being such wonderful friends to both us and the flock. We love you! XOXO

Spotlight on Harvey

Harvey has come such a long way since we brought him home. It took foreeeeever to finger tame him. But he did it! Even though he won’t stay on a finger very long… Harvey loves to pal around with his bros, Felix and Ozzie. He is very active and never in one place very long. 

I call Harvey “our little hormone”. He just wants to be with the ladies. Here he is staring at Sunny. He woos both Sunny and Cooper. He tries to flirt with Emmy, but Ozzie will chase him away. Lately he’s been chatting up Sido. Sigh.
Harvey is slowly getting to be more comfortable with his humans. I’ve even managed a few very brief belly kisses at bedtime. Patience with budgies definitely pays off : ).
