Introducing Morty Moriarty!

Please welcome our new addition to the flock, Morty Moriarty!

Morty Moriarty


He is a rehome & was dropped off here by his concerned owners who felt he was not getting the attention he deserved.  He arrived on Friday the 16th October, with a large cage & a bag of food, toys & accessories.  After a little over three weeks of quarantine in my bedroom, on Sunday 8th November, I wheeled him into the room to meet Perry & Lennie.


I have not let Morty Moriarty out yet.  Though Perry & Lennie have had a few days with him, getting used to the extra noise, so far they have not gone to visit him.  Moriarty is the other side of Dalai’s cage (that seems to be the name for the Silver Villa now…) which is quite a trek given that their health/flying problems have curtailed their movements somewhat.

Nevertheless, on the first day, Lennie did venture out onto the top of their cage door & peered across at Moriarty, so I am hoping he will pluck up a bit more courage in the next few days & maybe go into Dalai’s cage to get a closer look.


Moriarty is less than one year old & still has a young outlook.  He is very lively.  He is not afraid of hands though does like to bite, however, he loves bells, so if he is on my hand, biting, I just steer him towards a bell & he is distracted!

I am looking forward to telling you more about him & also reporting on new flock dynamics which I am hoping will be all positive!

    Moriarty is a gorgeous boy! I’m sure curiosity will get the better of Lennie and Perry soon!

    There is nothing more exciting than a First Meeting of Budgies! And Morty Moriarty suits him perfectly – the Morty includes his heritage, and the Moriarty adds a touch of possible budgie-villainy to come!

    You will have to temporarily re-christen Perry or Lennie as Sherlock to keep him in check!
