Remembering Sunny

I like to share memories of our “rainbow” budgies on what would have been their hatchdays.
This year I decided to share videos.

Sunny had a sweet, gentle, playful nature. But she also had a “naughty” side. She liked to tip over her food dish, nibble on books or investigate off limit areas. She was a good little girlfriend to Dewey and companion to our girls.
She was a water baby, and absolutely loved baths and spritzes. After bath time, she would be drenched.
A favorite game was to drop toys off the top of the cage for me to catch. She was often beak deep in balsa, and when she could no longer fly (due to arthritis) Sunny enjoyed her playtime on the floor with her footies. When she was ready to go back to her cage, she would hop on our feet to let us know.

Sunny was such a constant – we had her for 9 “Sunny” years. We are lucky we had her in our lives, and for all the wonderful memories we have of our time with her.

Birthday Tiel

Today we celebrated Sido’s Hatchday. We adopted Sido from a rescue, so we don’t know how old she really is (this is her 8th year with us). 

Here is Sido with her hatchday millet.

And here she is with her hatchday present – a foraging box. So far she’s just perched on the edge, but I’m sure she’ll dive in when she figures out there are tasty snacks to look for.
Of course, she got lots of hatchday scritches, too.

Happy hatchday Sido – we love you! xoxo
