I only thought grass like that existed in Scott's lawn care commercials. . . . My poor yard would be soooo embarrassed if I ever took its picture LOL! I do, however, have some of the finest and hardiest bindweed this side of the Mississippi

Cindy, she is lovely and thanks to your great care has a chance for a good quality of life.
It sure did, Maggie.

But I can't get over the clarity of that picture! What sort of camera did you use?

Actually, Cynthia, it's an old Sony Mavica. I've had it about six years now & was reluctant to buy it but Chuck insisted. Sooo glad that he did. I love it. I don't think they even make them anymore.

Every picture I've taken has been from that camera. As with everything, some are better than others & some are very unusual. I never know what I'm going to capture.

Here's one of my top ten favorite 'feral' photos AND the most unusual.
The second one is a squeaker taking his first flight from atop Mikko & Pij'ette's place down to Frank & Jessie's place. This was back in '04 (pre aviary days) when my guys were living outside.
I hadn't paid any attention the the 'tail' until Terry mentioned it when I first posted the picture way back when.
The parents were behind the baby, watching him. They flew down to greet him once he landed. I think I have a picture of it. Will take a look. It's cute.

Cindy, I gotta say that second picture is really something. His little tail feathers look like a banner hung on him. So unusual. Great pictures.....as always.

Thanks Maggie.

I did find the picture of the parents greeting the little one after his successful landing.
He was sooo pleased with himself.

Thumbs up

Those two "baby" pictures are really something, Cindy!! A TRUE before and after!

Bet REALLY cute captions could be applied to those two pictures! Great for a contest!

Was that baby ever named?

Those are fabulous pictues Cindy! Loved them. Your bird room is so utterly perfect, even before the aviary.

Wait a minute. Went back and looked more closely. Are those outside? I don't recall the white brick in the AZ room, but then I was more focused on the birds.

That is one gorgeous pidgie. You did a great job!
Yep! It's real grass. And yes, George we do have a mower.
The yard isn't real big, but it's mowed every week.

Yes, those cages were outside. However we do have white brick inside as well.

I had two large cages out on the patio for a couple years. One housed Mikko, Pij'ette & their two daughters, Sadie & Sam. The other housed Frank & Jessie. Then Chuck built the aviary & they were all brought inside.
