We don’t always get the budgies’ photos right on the first shot*. Here are some pics that didn’t make the cut.A carrot beak makes a yummy snack.Cooper wouldn’t face forward. She really wanted that millet!I have LOTS of photos of Cooper “undecorating” the tree.Which one is salt and which one is pepper? Ask Cooper.
* Due to the photographer and through no fault of the models, of course.
Budgie dreams 8
The aviary at Waddesdon Manor (Buckinghamshire, England).
Happy birthday Harry!
Cooper (singing along with Peggy Lee) and the flock wish you a happy birthday!
The budgies got some fun toys for Christmas. Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. The budgies were in constant action and I took them in the evening (I don’t like to use the flash).Here is Ozzie (who is moulting – again) next to the “starburst”. This toy was a definite hit.Dewey seeing what all the fuss is about.Cooper hard at work untying the knots.No one would go near this toy – but I’m sure once they figure out it won’t eat them, it will provide lots of fun.Sunny claiming the “marshmallows”. When she’s busy elsewhere, the other budgies sneak in a nibble.There was feasting on millet and lettuce as well.I had a gift to open, too! These little budgie salt and pepper shakers were from my friend, Craig. They’re so darn cute (almost as cute as the real thing) – thank you Craig!
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Presents arrived for the budgies!
And they just couldn’t wait until Christmas to open them.
From Tam – Canadian millet, and from Adam – a giftcard from Petsmart! Cooper is wondering how she can keep them all to herself…
Adam also sent this fantastic budgie sticker. Looks like a handsome fellow I know.
Thank you so much Tam and Adam!
XOXO, the flock
