When I was 10, my dad brought a finch in our home. He was so friendly! When we used to sit around him, I think it was his favourite! He never stopped singing!
We kept him for 3-4 years I think. Then we had some canaries, but they were never so friendly as he was.
Many years later, our local breeder and friend gave us a budgie as a present. She was remarkable!
And I think she was one of the best bird-friends I ever had!
