A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Did you know that budgies can blow bubbles? Phineas can.
He has always been into regurgitating & favours my finger or thumb, on my right hand, of course. A few weeks prior to his recent little break from regurgitating & jiggying due to moulting/breeding/a reason known only to Phinny, the amount of seed regurgitated increased.
Normally, he would leave, at most, a very thin smear of goop on my finger. All seed is gobbled back up by him. During the increased regurgitation, a lot more was left behind:

It was when there was the increase that I noticed his ability to blow bubbles with the goop. I was impressed to say the least! If you look closely at some of the photos above, you can see the goop is foamy & bubbly.
Since his return to normal form, he has quickly returned to that high level of regurgitating. All the signs are there:
- Lots left on my finger when he has finished,
- The occasional blowing of a goopy bubble,
- Near constant demands for my finger to regurgitate on/to.
I wonder how long this phase will last?
