I am very proud to report that follower rosebudgie’s dearly departed Ian & Marshall feature on the summer-themed banner of the 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:
As you can see, it shows Ian & Marshall travelling the world on their summer holiday. It can be seen in situ here: http://budgerigarsforum.proboards.com/ until the end of September. Do take a look & have a browse around the friendly & informative forum.
I joined Instagram recently (@onesweetiepea) & took part in the Instagram challenge #12daysoffolksy.
Folksy is the home of British Craft, where you will find thousands of beautifully designed creations – all made by clever hands crafting away across the UK. They set up an Instagram challenge to help promote Folksy, promote its sellers (& others!) & to have a bit of fun!
I am a new Folksy seller & you can imagine that some of my items are inspired by birds or bird-related (link to my shop is at the bottom of this page). Naturally, I used some of the chosen themes to ‘promote’ my birds! Day 10 was ‘Feast’, so I posted a picture of Dalai, Perry & Lennie feasting on red millet:
I was delighted to find that they won a prize for the best animal-themed post for Day 10! They had more red millet to celebrate!
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have recognised the above photo from a previous post in 2017. (Click here to see that post). The slight sadness in this is that the red millet was in celebration of Bezukhov’s 7th birthday & you can see him in the photos in the original post. So, I feel he deserves a mention too, given that had he not had a 7th birthday, they would not have had that millet & therefore the photos would not have been taken & the prize not won! So we give big thanks to our dearest, departed friend, Bezukhov.
We have won the banner competition on the budgerigars forum. It is a bittersweet victory; we are very pleased & proud to have won, yet sad that we lost Phineas in the time between submitting the banner & winning the competition.
There is a competition each season to select a new banner, with the winner voted for by the members. The theme was Autumn. In the northern hemisphere, Autumn usually means back to school, so I used this idea & came up with the following:
