I decided to try and get some flying shots of my guys. Sadly my camera is made of fail; it doesn't actually take the photo when you press the button, but about 1.5secs after. So it was a case of take the photo and hope a bird flew past while the shutter was open! O.o

Sitting with my Buffy over breakfast this morning, and she realised she could see another bird (reflected in the plastic covering on my unopened canvas)! And not only that, a shadow of a bird! I thought it was too pretty to miss.

General vid of my birdies. Jump to 3:40 to hear Pippin talking. (with subtitles!!)  XD

It's hard to catch him talking because every time he sees the camera he chases it! He loves seeing himself or one of the other birds in the screen on the back. So we were very lucky to catch this!


Another lovely Autumn morning....
lots of birdy pix... )

We've had our cockatiel, Spike, for almost a year now. He was roughly 6 weeks old when we got him, and not tame in any way. We already had 2 budgies when Spike joined the flock, Pippin and Luna. Luna was only a couple of months old at the time, and has been utterly bonded with Pippin since she first set eyes on him.

Spike has always been very fond of the budgies, but now it seems he is actually in love with Luna.

He follows her everywhere. He sings to her, bows to her, dances and hops around her, pretends to eat beside her. The minute she steps into view his wings open that little bit, so he looks like a more splendid bird!

It's amazing and amusing and quite tragic. Like some sort of Shakespearan play! He is utterly besotted, and she has eyes (understandably) only for Pippin!
a 'tiel in love with a budgie?! )

Lovely warm Spring weather = birdies outside and bathtime!  (via a spray-bottle shower)

wet! birdy pix. )
Did I mention daughter bought a new budgie a few weeks ago? 
clicky for pix and vid )
Did you know that budgies see into the UV spectrum? And that to other budgies, certain parts GLOW. Well, as soon as I heard this, I had to get a UV/blacklight so I could see my budgies the way they see each other...

the birdies show their true colours! )
