Remembering Cagney on his birthday

On this day 11 years ago, our dear friend Cagney hatched.  Three months later he & his best friend Bezukhov came into our home.

Here is a video of the two of them enjoying some wild grass:

Summer Banner 2020

I am very proud to report that though they are no longer with us, Cagney & Bezukhov feature on the summer-themed banner of a budgerigars forum!

There is a competition each season to select a new banner, with the winner voted for by the members.  The following is the winner:

 

The budgies are (L to R):

  • Custard under the umbrella,
  • Feathered Fiends Billybob & Hector under the palm tree,
  • our dear Bezukhov & Cagney,
  • Sansa, Strudel & Spyro frolicking in the sea,
  • Sharing sausages, Marshall with the rubber ring & his brother Ian looking very glamorous in the straw hat.

 

The banner can be seen in situ here: http://budgerigarsforum.proboards.com/ over summer.  Do take a look & have a browse around the friendly & informative forum. 🙂

 

Remembering Cagney on his birthday

On this day 10 years ago, wonderful Cagney hatched.  I did not meet him & his best buddy Bezukhov, until 3 months later.  How lucky was I?

Here is a video of him enjoying some millet:

Love Your Pet Day, 2020

Today is ‘Love Your Pet Day’.  Of course every day is ‘Love Your Pet Day’.

My three feathery companions are all well.  They are moulting again (how is that possible?!)  Dalai has been extra grumpy because of that.  Perry is in good spirits despite his ever-growing lump.  Lennie is coping with his difficulty in flying by eating, but he has not thought that strategy through!

There is no discrimination on “Love Your Pet Day” as I also think of those long gone: our dear Raspy, her sister Atilla, handsome Thomas, incorrigible Phineas, cheeky Cagney & lastly, dear Bezukhov.  Today has been so rainy & Bezukhov loved to watch the rain…

Peeling a pea

Does anyone else peel peas for their birds?

Dalai & Perry like sugar snap peas (Lennie not so much) but tend to ignore them if they are not peeled.  They also eat more when I present a peeled portion of pea on my finger.

 

I have been reflecting on those who were here before.  Cagney loved a pea.  He would expertly hull the pea & eat the treasure inside.  Phineas also loved a pea but would eat the casing too.  He would chomp down & it was all gone in a second.  Some earlier posts on peas are here:

Pea preference

Peas, peas and more peas

 

Remembering Cagney on his birthday

Today would have been Cagney’s 9th birthday.  For the first time in a long time, he will be able to celebrate it with his best buddy, Bezukhov.

With that in mind, I have chosen a video of the two of them having a little flirt:

We love you.
