Husband and I have decided to get another bird. First we looked at lineolated parakeets, but Jane, our breeder won’t have any ready for several months. And of course, when I get something into my head, I need to do it NOW. Senegals were on our list, so now we’re looking at them. Jane is going to see if she can locate one of them for us. Handfed of course.
I checked out Milkwoodaviaries.com but they don’t have anything under about $6oo, which is a little out of our range at the moment.
I bought a beautiful book yesterday. It’s called the Encyclopedia of Caged and Aviary Birds. There is basic info on about 500 different species and subspecies of birds. It’s not exhaustive by any stretch, but the pictures make it worth it. It has, of course, successfully added several more feathered friends to my must-have list. New additions inclued the Splendid Grass Parakeet, the Galah cockatoo, and the Green-naped Lorikeet. These join the African Grey Timneh, the Sun Conure and the Scarlet Macaw. Sigh.
Some people want the pitter patter of little feet. I want the sound of birds.
