Default First 2013 Flock Pictorial [pic heavy]

I've really been slacking with photos this year, but today I decided to present the aviary with an epic picnic of parsley, thistle and dandelion and I couldn't possible miss capturing the moments.

To bring everyone up to speed with what's been happening, I've had 5 new additions so far this year - Sally, Lily, Jules, Toz, and a male that is yet to be named (I'll be taking suggestions! A part of me is thinking 'James'...). They are slowly growing to love their new companions and getting use to flock life after being confined to a small cage for quite some time. Sadly, Sally has been found to have had a broken right wing which has left her mostly unable to fly. I will be breeding her once at the end of this year, and then will be looking to rehome her to someone who can keep her in a smaller cage, where flying will not seem such a daunting task.
On top of that, I acquired a 'wild' budgie earlier this year who was drawn to the aviary. Due to me having just watched Pirates of the Caribbean and his eclectic personality, he was dubbed Captain Jack. After failing to find his owners, he finished quarantine before joining the others in the aviary.
Also, my last clutches have grown into stunning birds, each with their own attitude (some more noticable than others!). They've all been through their first moults now and I must say that I am so very proud of them; they make the losses I suffered a little less painful.

But now, on with the picnic!

Newbie Toz watched closely as I entered with the goodies.


Captain Jack was one of the smarter ones, choosing to munch on the leaves in the food bowl rather than fight over those hanging around the cage.


This photo makes me laugh. Dante was fiercely protecting a piece of dandelion from Unnamed Male, who somehow managed to trip over Pockie as he ran away.


This is another favourite of mine. With Mo perching above, I can just imagine what is going through the heads of Sora, Yuki and Dante. "Please don't poop, please don't poop..."


This piece was a crowd favourite with Mo, Yuki, JJ, Sammy and Dante.


Father Yuki and his eldest sons Gidget and Sora enjoyed a meal together.


Gusty young Pockie claimed this entire thistle for herself!


And sister Spangle did the same! Cheeky little girls...


Quiet little Snowy made sure she got her share.


Mo went off to share some pre-eaten food with sister Jimmette... who today he 'officially' took as his mate! Oops!


Special little Peanut took some time out to come and say hello. Isn't he looking great? Apart from his feet, you'd never know this little boy was a touch 'different'.


Puddleduck kept a close eye on me, too.


Poor little Sally opted to stay out of trouble, what with her injured right wing.


She did have a little munch on a flower though.




After gorging themselves on the lush greenery, most of them settled down to sleep.

Sora went to check on sister Kin...


Before settling down to sleep with Song.


Newcomer Jules was tired just from watching the others.


With a full belly, cranky-looking Dante went to find a quiet place to sleep.


My pride and joy, newcomer Lily, was exhausted after fighting her way in to the greens.


*sigh* There's always one weird one, isn't there? Puddleduck wasn't happy to sleep normally like the others.


The handsome new stud, Toz settled down to snooze.


Stormy was exhausted, even though she hadn't eaten.


Yuki decided to make himself look good before he slept.



And now for the fella who needs a name. He's a beautiful lutino/cremino who came with Toz, Jules, and Sally.





Hope you all enjoyed this rather lengthy post!

Absolutely STUNNING birds. You took such EXCELLENT photos of them, as well!

What makes Peanut different? He looks really sweet.

The unnamed guy is really beautiful. I would think of something like "Buttercup" for him. That name was suggested a while back for a similar looking bird and they didn't choose it but I still like it.

Wonderful photos. I really enjoyed scrolling through them. I think Mr NoName is a Dandelion, he could be Dandy or Lion for short

Great photos. What beautiful birds you have. They really did have a fun day with all of those greens. I'm not good chosing names, but Sherbet also came to mind for me.
