Hello beautiful rays of sunshine!
Today’s post is about something special! Something which makes me feel responsible, loved, happy and emotionally invested at the same time. This new experience is so blissfully beautiful and I want to enjoy each moment to the fullest. I know these little guys are going to be excited each time I get home, show their happiness whenever I strum my guitar sitting near them, make me clean up after them a LOT (trust me, my first time was extremely unpleasant), chirp my pensive mood away, teach me many things, scientific things to be specific, and most importantly love me unconditionally! Ohh…I am so touched. Lol.
Alright then, let me unravel the mystery about this post now. Although I think, I have given you guys some hints already…
I have got four birds as pets!
Meet SIMBA, SARAH, COCO and RIO!
Well judging by their names you can guess how much I adore Disney movies! I wanted to name one after Po, but, unfortunately got vetoed out of it. It still hurts. *wink* *wink*
So I am now a proud pet parent of two pairs of birds belonging to breeds Zebra Finch and White Finch each. Unfortunately, Coco had been poked in the eye by some bird while at the pet store, so she had faced a bit more trouble in adjusting, than the others. Thankfully, she is all better now and keeps frolicking around with her bestie, Sarah.
I love their snowy coat of feathers and res shiny beaks! Nature sure has its own way of embellishing beauty.
I observed that both Simba and Sarah (Zebra Finches) are both gregarious and fun-loving and on the other hand it seems, Rio and Coco (White Finches) keep having tiffs over issues I am clearly not aware of. It is hard to see them all huddled up next to each other, but I guess I got lucky tonight!
Since they are adults, it will be hard for them to learn to sit on my shoulder or be comfortable with human touch. Although I am pretty sure, I will be getting loads of pictures clicked with their offspring. Care to suggest me some names for the future generation? I have already exhausted my favorite names supply.
I am eagerly waiting for the time, they’ll be comfortable and well adjusted enough, to fly freely around my house. How fun, that would be! And of course, when their little tree house is ready for them to reside in, I’ll throw another house warming party for them, that day.
I would love to hear suggestions and advice on how to rear these birds and their offspring. Please feel free to share your views in the comments section. Also, tell me about your experiences of being a pet parent for the first time.
