Re: Looking for species specific resources

Oh yes that clears things up a lot typically fledged means starting to fly, as in could have come down out of the nest. So it actually sounds like I was misunderstanding and he is more or less right on track thatís a fun age!

I don't like to think about where I would be if that little budgie had never fluttered into my life.

Re: Looking for species specific resources

It's so cute to watch him standing on the edge of my desk thinking about taking off. It takes him several minutes to work up the courage to jump. This morning he seems to be actually aiming for a specific spot and getting fairly close to where he was intending. I've rearranged my entire first floor to make it safe for him, should he decided to go farther than the room he's in (it's a huge room, about 300 square feet). I have him back in his bin for a rest, but he's not resting. He's chewing on the toys I have in there for him. He's definitely busier today than he's been in the past few days. (edited for typo)
