Goes without saying Nerwen :)

Latest news in the aviary is that Buddha flies everywhere now. Bao is lonely on the ground without her mate Buddha...her flying lessons are taking longer to grasp. But Scooter has a bruised wing and is ground level mostly right now so Bao has company. A new baby to Ciara so she has five and all doing well.

Here's the latest photos from Misty and Chucky's nestbox...two the same are looking a bit like the Mother in the pale coloured wings but body colour ( on the eldest ) is coming out pale blue or mauve. Second eldest baby seems to be a yellow face cobalt normal so far and youngest baby colouring up like the eldest ( with same wings colours so far).

Latest head count on babies in the aviary is....Ciara 5, Bloo 4, Butter 1, Shiloh 2, Spice 1, Kaya 4,

Izzy 3 or 4, Misty 3...........plus eggs all round.

The reason Bao isnt flying yet I have just discovered is she only has a couple of primary flight feathers thus far :)

So that makes that cinnamon baby a girl right ? Kaya's partner is a YF2 spangle boy.

Thanks for that... it's fun to run updates everyday as its part of checking the aviary 3 to 4 times a day anyway. Cheers Karen :D

Kaya always puts her wing over the bubbies and bring them in close to keep warm. She's a very, very good mother too. Zeuss and Buddha are the best of mates. Actually Buddha has a really lovely nature. Would have been a good indoors bird. Seeing him fly is magic too...he is so big that the wings outstretched in full flight look nearly angelic....beautiful. :D

Well that depends on if the father is split to Cinnamon or not. If you know that he's really NOT split for cinnamon, then yes, the baby is a girl! :D

Firstly let me say this is a fantastic idea Bubbles. I'll be following the babies with interest.

Secondly, I want Bao. So gorgeous. I'm in love, sorry hubby, aaw. I'm kinda used to birds with difficulties. I have one ringneck who only has one foot and another one with skeletal deformity so she crashes rather then flies. The 3rd just has social issues.

Did I mention I love Bao?

^_^

Thanks, I am enjoying adding to it like a diary. Bao is a cutie. Every evening I go in and "put the babies to bed" ( on a perch in the sheltered end ) so they dont get caught out in the cold or rain......tonight I didnt get in there as early......but Bao figured out she had to toddle down to the end of the aviary in the sheltered area and was climbing up the wall to put herself on the perch that is her "bed" .......smart bird ^_^

(Laughing out loud)... I think Lin will have to be happy with her 'godmother' role to Bao, because I don't think Karen is giving her away for adoption... ^_^

 

Hey Lin, let us know when you wanna go visit.. I'll see if I can come and join ya for a little 'budgie fix' trip. :D

If I go back I will STEAL Bao ^_^ I need to visit sometime in August, Karen will let you know when, as she is picking up some tiels for me. Will probably be a Saturday, as I have to work the odd Sunday now.

Yes....my old Dad is getting too old to care for his tiels anymore and Lin is taking them. Fourteen I think with some cinnamons too. Dad cuts himself when he gets around the aviary now and at 77, diabetic and on blood thinning drugs he cant afford to be doing that anymore. Bao wouldnt be too hard to steal Lin, ....she can only run so fast. :D

Oh August... could be a problem then.. pending when in August. I am leaving 6th of August (Sunday) to head to Singapore then to Penang for a month!!

Yeah, but how easy is it to run past Bao's mommy to get to the car I wonder... hey Lin, may be if I distract Bao's mommy while you sneak away into your car?? would that work you think?? :)

***UPDATE*** on Amara the missing violet opaline girl who was found again. She is nesting behind some brushwood fencing attached to the inside of the aviary. Amara went missing over a week ago and we found her eventually when she came out from behind the brush fencing. She has eggs and or babies down there. Her partner Merlin shimmies up and down the fencing to feed her. We know where she is but cant see her at the moment. Need a strong torch to look. If she has babies down there (ground level) we may not see them till they are old enough and figure out how to get out of there like their parents. ^_^
