His photos are blurry (because of panicking and shaking) or he is far. I think below is the only "good" pic, wherein I still see in his eyes the panicking

I am so glad that Romek is safe & sound with you now, what a sweetheart he is.

Terry, this may be my favorite theme EVER, ANY TIME, EVER, EVERRRRR!
I have been so touched, so inspired, so amazed, SO many times, by the ways we love our birds, despite (due to?) their 'imperfections'.

Phoe's pose is wonderful. Full frontal "DON'T HATE ME BECAUSE I AM BEAUTIFUL" Phoe-ness.

I will really enjoy showing off some examples of the Rb's imperfections. While splendid in plumage and carriage, his character is remorselessly wretched.


Great theme, and a wonderful way to give Phoe the send-off he deserves.
Thank you, Gail, he did know he was beautiful even without his feathers. Looking forward to the Rb pics!

Oh, Sweet, Beautiful Patches. I am so glad you posted this. I bet that he & Phoe have become friends, and that makes me happy.

Thank you, Chris, and thank you for sharing a picture of the gorgeous Parker. It is obvious how happy he is, and he is beautiful.

Re: January 2019 POTM

Thank you for this contest theme, Terry, it's a beautiful idea and such a sweet tribute to your darling Phoe.

Wonderful photos of our first few contestants already and January's contest has just begun.

Thank you for that thought Terry, I bet you're right. Of course they might not have recognized each other at first with their newly adorned suits of feathers and all. :-)

You know, I bet they recognized each other's hearts even with their new finery.
What magnificent hearts they are.

Re: January 2019 POTM

Penny plucks her neck. And the tip of her right toe is missing, which is sad because she is right footed. Also I fear she has a stricture that may make her lose the next joint on that toe...

Penny is such a pretty girl. I hope she doesn't lose the next joint on that toe. She looks like a fighter though so I bet she will be able to deal with anything put in her path.

Re: January 2019 POTM



This is Jester. He's a gorgeous light blue colour and when I was getting him I noticed he held his left wing a little low. it didn't put me off though! It actually motivated me to get him so I could make sure he got any care he needed.

The vet said it's likely an old break from when he was a chick and that he was probably malnourished, which also caused one of his toes to not be able to grip. He's otherwise healthy and happy!

He is the sweetest little bird, he can fly but not as quick as my other budgie and he gets tired quickly but boy does he try! He's still pretty nervous around me but he's never bitten me even when I've had to hold him and he's always singing to his friend Piper. He even gets along with my GCC!

I'm so glad to have this little guy as part of my flock
