Budgie is now safe in a cage August 30 2011

Emily C was able to capture the budgie this morning with the help of the local vet assistant and her mom. The budgie was very happy to be with other budgies.

A happy ending.

Beautiful Budgie and Night Hawks Backyard Birding

This beautiful budgie was in my back yard tonight. I see blue (yes) and think indigo bunting but no it is a budgie. Called Chris and she came over with her two budgies to see if we could sing it in. No luck yet but left a bird cage here. Thanks Chris.

Nighthawk - a pair flew over the house

A cardinal was feeding this young baby. Is it a sparrow, cowbird - not sure
