I'm told Icarus is a boy, about one year. Though I'm not sure because I'm no where near a budgie expert. I think he's gorgeous though. He on the other hand, doesn't think too much of me! Very frightened if I approach to fast. That being said, he now lets me sit next to him if he's out of the cage. I guess he likes to feel he can fly away if he's scared. Whats more though, he lets me pick him up with a perch sometimes
This is Iris
I'm told Iris is a girl. She is a bit more tolerant of me. Sometimes she sits on my finger! Its so exciting (always on her own terms though) She is the first to explore any new toy or food. She also figured out not to hit walls faster than Icarus. She even let me pat her chest sometimes!
Here is Icarus and Iris this morning, watching telly with me
For some reason, I can't see Iris's pic! But Icarus is adorable!!
Well that gives me an excuse to take another picture and post
Thank you to everyone that said something kind about my budgies. Its my first time every having budgies, and everyone here has been so helpful! I've even been told that they are most likely baby budgies, which is exciting for me. I had no idea budgies were so sweet and clever! And you know, I have always been told the biggest set back about having budgies is how noisy they are, but I hardly notice their singing. They blend in with the birds that fly around! Unless I live in a particulary noisy wild bird habitat, they seem pretty fine to me
