2019 review – TOP POSTS

So, 2020 is here.  Now is a good time to reflect on the popular posts of the last year.  For starters, here are the top 5 posts that got the most views in 2019:

  1. Cagney & his amazing pin feathers (November
  2. Two weeks in the life of a blood feather (May
  3. Returning to normal…. (November
  4. RBS – Randy Budgie Syndrome (
  5. Unfeathered forehead (June 2013)

 

The top spot has been retained by Cagney.  Randy Phinny has dropped from number 2 position to number 4.  The three new entries all have links to feathers and moults so this theme continues to be a hot topic in the world of budgies, supporting the continued reign of Cagney’s & his amazing pin feathers.

What will happen in 2020?  And what posts will attract most viewers?

 

 

2018 Review – TOP POSTS

So, 2019 is here.  Now is a good time to reflect on the popular posts of the last year.  For starters, here are the top 5 posts that got the most views in 2018:

  1. Cagney & his amazing pin feathers (November

  2. RBS – Randy Budgie Syndrome (

  3. The ABC’s of budgie noises (

  4. Cage Portfolio (December

  5. Introduction: Stages 6a, 6b, 6c (November

Positions 1, 2 & 3 are posts that are regularly in the top five.  Posts at positions 1 & 2, lead by a substantial amount.  New additions have crept into positions 4 and 5.

Unusually the two posts that have dropped out have been popular for some years, but it appears that in 2018, viewers are not so interested in the welfare of spider plants (Poor spider plant) or have concerns over the noise their birds make (How to keep a budgie or budgies quiet?)!

What will happen in 2019?  And what posts will attract most viewers?

To celebrate the achievements of the top two posts in 2019, here is a throwback picture of Amazing Cagney & Randy Phinny:

2017 Review – TOP POSTS

The year 2018 is here.  It is now time to reflect on the last 12 months.  For starters, here are the top 5 posts that got the most views in 2017:

  1. The ABC’s of budgie noises (

  2. RBS – Randy Budgie Syndrome (

  3. Cagney & his amazing pin feathers (November

  4. How to keep a budgie or budgies quiet? (May 2012)

  5. Poor spider plant (June

 

In first & second positions are two posts that consistently score a high number views over the years.   There are only 13 views between them; it is almost like they are linked, i.e., lots of randy budgies must be making all sorts of noises!  Noisy budgies are clearly an important theme, given position four.

We cannot have a birdie blog without some reference to feathers or moults, hence position three.

Surprisingly, there still seems to be a lot of interest in budgies eating house plants (position five).  I will take this opportunity to remind those looking after birds to check that any plants kept in the same room are safe plants.  There are lots of websites listing safe plants & those that are not safe, so please check if you are unsure.

Above, you will see I have chosen Phinny to represent position two, & Cagney, position three.

 

Happy New Year to you all. 🙂

 

2016 Review – TOP POSTS

The year 2017 is here.  It is now time to reflect on the last 12 months.  For starters, here are the top 5 posts that got the most views in 2016:

    1. RBS – Randy Budgie Syndrome (

    2. The ABC’s of budgie noises (

    3. How to keep a budgie or budgies quiet? (May 2012)

    4. Cagney & his amazing pin feathers (November

    5. Poor spider plant (June

 

The first & second positions have stayed the same as for 2015.  The post ‘How to keep a budgie or budgies quiet‘ has moved up two places in the last year.  Surprisingly, ‘Phinny & the hand jive‘, that was in third place last year, has dropped a long way.   Positions four & five are new entries.  This list still indicates there are lots of noisy, randy budgies out there, with perhaps more houseplants at risk!

Happy New Year to you all. 🙂

The first & second positions have swapped from the year before but I can say there are only 9 views between them.  It is possible this list indicates there are lots of noisy, randy budgies out there!

Happy New Year to you all. 🙂
