Default May 2013 Budgie of the Month Contest

TALK BUDGIES BUDGIE OF THE MONTH
MAY 2013


OK -- just wait a minute!

Before any of you feel you must make a snarky comment I KNOW I’m not a budgie!


However, my Mom and The Sunshine Boys are very busy working on the Talk Budgie Bird Show this month.
Therefore, I will be the contest coordinator for the Budgie of the Month Contest for May of 2013!

Now that we have all THAT out of the way…

The Challenge:

PREENING INTERUPTED

Don’t even TRY to pretend you don’t preen! ALL birds preen and you know how aggravating it is when you
are right in the midst of enhancing your natural beauty and someone decides to rudely interrupt you.

So – show us those pictures!!

One lucky budgie will be the winner of this challenge. The owner will receive 50 karma points and the winning budgie
will be automatically entered into the Talk Budgies Budgie of the Year Contest to be held in December.


Don’t dally! Get those pictures in now!

This challenge will close on May 25th and the winner will be announced on May 31st!

Hellooooo!! Where is EveryBirdie?

I happen to KNOW that lots of you budgies have pictures of when your preening was interrupted. Why, oh why isn't anyone entering my contest.

And -- the fact that you all are getting ready for the Talk Budgie Bird Show is not an acceptable excuse

Freki, darling, that is a preen-perfect entry!

Anytime someone snaps my photo when I'm grooming my gorgeous feathers I consider it an interruption.

But, I'm gorgeous anyway so I guess it doesn't really matter.

You were very kind to submit the very FIRST entry, Freki xoxo

Now, let's see some more of those "preening" pictures, Everybudgie!!

Here is Leonel's kind of scary face when I interrupted him mid preening.
He didn't have time to put on his usual cute, pretty face.



Suggestion for next month: Wet budgies.

I just spent ages taking photos of the flock preening... and now I have to pick which one to enter! So difficult to pick, as I have two shots I love... I think I'd better ask Cuttlefish for a second opinion!

OK, here we go... Thanks Cuttlefish!

Audrey is our entry this month. She is the prettiest of our flock (at least according to Cuttlefish), but has to spend lots of time preening to make sure she stays as beautiful as possible!


Our suggestion for next month would be budgies at play.
