730 Days of Emmy

Two years ago, today, Emmy joined the flock.

Emmy in November, 2013.nb2Emmy in November, 2014.e1Emmy today.em2annEmmy has come such a long way since we first brought her home. Last year at this time she was finally stepping up – but would hop off as soon as possible. Now she’s a pro at perching on our fingers. She’s proof positive that patience pays off.

Emmy is still a bit of a homebody. Sometimes we have to take her out of the cage, so that she will fly around and play with the budgies. She seems to prefer coming out in the evenings.

Emmy loves to take baths. And she’s become a very curious budgie. She has started investigating the objects in the room,  and has even started perching on our shoulders. She and Ozzie are a cute couple – if Ozzie is out of the cage, she will chirp loudly until he comes back to her. While she and Ozzie are bonded, she doesn’t mind sharing him with Sunny.

Emmy is such a sweet little bird, I just love seeing her little face every day. And kissing her little whipped cream belly!

Happy anniversary Emmy – we love you!

If you’re in the Oklahoma area…

They are trying to discover where the birds came from. They will announce soon whether the budgies will be up for adoption. Hopefully, they’ll all find good homes.
