I thought I’d switch things up for the birds with kebabs. Today it was watermelon, peppers and Romaine lettuce. 

I guess it’s been awhile. Felix was a little wary. And Sunny was very wary.

Ozzie dove right in. Nothing can keep this boy from his Romaine.

Adopt a Rescued Bird Month

Ozzie, Alfie and Sido were all adopted from our local rescues and Sunny, Emmy, Gordie, Lera, Felix and Harvey are all rehomed (Craigslist). They have brought so much joy and love into our lives.
If you are thinking of adding a bird to your family, please consider adopting. These birds have so much to give and deserve a second chance at a loving, forever home.

In the Spotlight – Sunny

We noticed that Sunny had been having difficulty flying in 2018, so we took her to the vet a couple times to have her checked out. She was put on pain meds, but she still wasn’t flying. She had an x-ray and no broken bones were found – so we think she may have arthritis. 

She does not seem to be in pain, and gets around the cage easily (she is a pro at climbing). However, the budgies’ flight cage is large and it is quite a fall from the top perches (where everybirdie wants to be). We bought ladders and more perches and arranged them  very close together so she could hop from one to another. Yet, she would still occasionally fall. So, now Sunny has her very own cage. She visits the girls in the big cage, and gets time to run around on the floor, but now we can breathe a little more easily that she won’t fall and hurt herself.

Aside from the not-flying Sunny is the picture of health. Here she is ringing in the new year in her new cage. We call it Sunny’s condo. She has just started taking little naps on the bottom of the cage. A habit I think she picked up from Emmy.
