New Toy – April
It’s the Tutti Frutti from Super Bird Creations.
Cooper’s friends Kelle and John bought the birds this toy as a gift. We have it next to a perch on the outside of the cage. The birds enjoy talking and singing to it so much we bought one for Sido and now another one for the inside of the cage. Here is Felix mid-chatter.

Update: Budgerigar Book
From Sarah Harris, author:
Basically the answer to our shipping issue is that Amazon UK has no stock as their stock comes from Australia and is not being sent because it is non-essential.
Amazon US apparently is always later with Australian titles and it will not be available until January 2021.
Booktopia does not send overseas only within Australia and NZ.
Cooper landed on the cover of SA Weekend!
Article inside includes an extract from the book Budgerigar: How a Brave, Chatty and Colourful Little Aussie Bird Stole the World’s Heart by Sarah Harris and Don Baker.
Cooper’s Book Report
This month’s book is Budgerigar: How a Brave, Chatty and Colourful Little Aussie Bird Stole the World’s Heart by Sarah Harris and Don Baker.
Budgie lovers rejoice! Budgerigar: How a Brave, Chatty and Colourful Little Aussie Bird Stole the World’s Heart has arrived. This fascinating book covers the history of our favorite little bird. Entertaining and comprehensive, Budgerigar explores how the budgie traveled from the wilds of Australia to homes around the world.
The book is thorough in its coverage – from the light side: famous budgies, famous budgie owners, budgie heroism and budgies as therapy animals, to the dark side: budgie smuggling, budgies as fashion, budgies as food (yikes), psittacosis and shooting for sport.
This is Cooper’s favorite book. She loved how it celebrated every aspect of the budgie and its history. Most of all – she loves that she is included in the book! She can be found on pages 221-222. Her photo can be seen in the insert. So exciting! Thank you to the authors for letting Cooper be a part of this wonderful book.
If you love budgies or know a budgie lover, Cooper highly recommends Budgerigar: How a Brave, Chatty and Colourful Little Aussie Bird Stole the World’s Heart.
