Five Feisty Years

Posted by calzephyr77 on 2015.08.09 at 09:55
I took this picture the other week of Feisty, just before the fifth anniversary of when we adopted him from the humane society. Alas he was in the middle of a very hard moult, which shows. I found his papers recently too. It's so hard to believe - I had no expectations for his health when we got him, and he does have a tumour or something weird going on with him - his beak overgrows. I really have no idea how old he is, as he was an adult when we got him. He is still wild and untamed, but he's such a good budgie and so smart. He chows down on Zupreem and new foods and pushes Mellow out of the way for a lettuce bath. He's a very attentive spouse and preens Mellow every hour, it seems!

I suppose if I knew that I would be taking photos of him, I would have cleaned all of Muffin's powder off the mirror :-)

Sweet Budgie!

Adopted birds are the best aren't they?

He is very cute :) I miss having a budgie. Their intelligence and personalities are great.

Budiges are so awesome. I love lying on the couch and listening to them. One of the reasons we got Feisty was that I missed budgies and thought Muffin was a little lonely. Turns out only one of those was true :D
