He along with his flock mates are the light of our life.
Never since Speedy has there been such a light in one of our precious babies eyes when we get home :')
He came into our lives almost 3 years ago now (it's his coming home day 21st August)
Since he came home he has lost his baby bars, then gained something similar back, and now lost them again, and he only has cheek spots on one side of his fluffy little face
I had Flat Bonnie on Facebook create a Flat Ezio Budgitore for Nathans Christmas present a while back, they did a brilliant job including the one sided cheek spots
Flat Ezio Budgitore has traveled from where he was born, to Bunbury Western Australia, to Melbourne Victoria on our holiday last year and will be coming with me whilst I'm away for work in the coming weeks - he's the most well traveled budgie I know in my opinion
He talks up a storm, his favorites are: "Ezio Budgitore" "I love you bubby" "Penny belly" "pretty Penny" "come on, come here, give me a kiss *Mwah*" "what did you do today I missed you!" "Is that dad, what's dad doing, I love you dad" "let's go west coast let's go!" "BUBBA!" "There's no internet" " Budgitore Budgitore Budgitore budgie budgie-tore" "do you want some of this" "how did you get so pretty" "so pretty" "oh the bubby" he also coughs, tells us to shoosh and laughs just like I do, he also laughs at the right time to suit things that he's done or have happened around him and he flaps his wings when we ask him questions to show what he wants
We have no idea how he moults out his baby bars, then gets black marks back and then moults them out again and he ADORES peas and corn and he makes our life complete
Your Ezio is adorable! And those aren't exactly baby bars, he has in fact some flecking on the forehead area and it's perfectly fine.
Some budgies do keep a faint baby barring that always comes back no matter the moults and this is a trait that can be present in recessive pied budgies.
I have living proof in my budgie girl, Peppy.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
