We don’t always get the budgies’ photos right on the first shot*. Here are some pics that didn’t make the cut.* Due to the photographer and through no fault of the models, of course.

Cooper’s Day Off
Cooper’s Book Report
This month’s book is Andy Gets the Blame by Freda M. Hurt.Ten year old Andy wants to buy her Aunty Loo a blue budgerigar for Christmas. But she hasn’t enough money. Each of Andy’s schemes to earn the 21 shillings for a budgie end in disaster. The worst happens when she is accused of stealing a budgie from an aviary. Will Andy be able to clear her name and give her aunt the most wonderful Christmas gift ever?Cooper loved this book. She thought the story was charming and was pleased that it had a happy ending. Someone who would worry and plan as much as Andy did for a budgie would probably make a great budgie slave – er, owner. Cooper particularly liked that the coveted budgie was blue.

Cooper’s Day Off
All Together Now
Emmy and Felix finally moved into the big cage. Felix pals around with Gordie, but is a little standoffish with the others. I think Emmy wanted to be alpha female, but Lera shut that down pretty quickly. Both are doing well and seem to enjoy being with the flock. And I enjoy having only one cage to clean : ).
