Autumn Banner 2016

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:

sweetpea-banner-autumn-1-16

 

The budgie stars are (L to R): Bezukhov, Cagney, Phineas & Feathered Fiends’ Monty.

For non-UK readers who may be perplexed at the sight of budgies with knotted handkerchiefs on their heads, this is what Wikipedia says:

In the United Kingdom, the habit of wearing a handkerchief with tied corners on one’s head at the beach has become a seaside postcard stereotype, referenced by the Gumby characters in Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
