Default Pickles loves strawberries!

When I first saw Pickles at the pet store, I thought maybe he had a 'boo boo' on his head, because it was all red! Turns out, it was strawberry. It seems to be his favorite food and will attack any strawberry morsel he comes across. Here are a couple photos I took of him and his favorite treat.


Messy Beak!


He looks a bit guilty here

Also, I work at a building that has a man-made pond on the grounds. It attracts many geese and other birds. I love them, I always like to say hello and admire them


A pair.


Mystery bird! I've never seen it before this year. Does anyone know what it is called? I was stunned by it's beauty... the blue is so vibrant in real life.

Thanks for looking and if you can name the mystery bird I'd love it!

Thanks.

Jill, Pickles is the silliest bird of them all! His stubby wings and tail probably contribute to it. He is very clumsy. Although he has learned to be quite the acrobat because he doesn't have flight like the others. His tail and wings are just FINALLY starting to grow in. I'm going to have to take some new pictures of him once they do. He's beginning to look like a grown up now!

Randy, maybe it is just the lighting, but he doesn't appear to be an olive to me. I'd say he is more lime colored. Either way I am glad you like him!

Pickles looks so cute eating his strawberry!

That bird in the last picture, I also don't know its name but I also see some of those in my area. They are quite new here, I have only started to see them a couple years ago. Don't even know where they came from or if they migrate, but I'm sure they weren't around here before.

Oh that is so cute! And so good of him to eat fruit. Makes me wish I had let Pinko eat the strawberries friends brought over the other day. I didn't know for sure whether the tiny seeds were ok or not so having over paranoid new mama syndrome I didn't let him.... Aww poor Pinko! But now I know!

Pickles is adorable and very spoilt to get strawberries. They are red gold in our house and I would be in a lot of trouble if I gave any to the birds.

The mystery bird looks to me like a Black Billed Magpie

Yes, I think you are right!! Thanks.

Thanks for the lovely comments, everyone. Pickles is indeed very lucky to get strawberry. I'd say they love it even more than millet. That, and parsley. I have very good birdies.
