Default A long long time ago

or something like that, there was my first rescue budgie ever.

He came to me with a damaged foot, a missing tail that never grew back, and a deep-rooted distrust against other birds that caused him to spend most of his long life as a solitary budgie.

He was so cute with that one barred feather right at the centre of his forehead that he never lost throughout his life.

I just found a bunch of photographs taken during the last year of his life.

He liked to help out in the kitchen... especially when we had herbs growing on the window sill...


He was a free-roaming budgie and spent most time other than eating in his favorite budgie-tree:


He loved to bathe. Unfortunately, he overdid it, and once managed to almost drown himself. He never came out of the water before he was soaking wet.
He also objected to anyone using pencils he hadn't thoroughly chewed up first. Sometimes he overdid his efforts a bit...

But he objected to being helped up:


Good old boy...


And Lord of the Castle


Rinaldo Rinaldini moved in with me on Febuary 24th, 1989. He died in July 2003 while I was on holiday.

Rinaldo had quite a life, one filled with your love and good care. Thanks for sharing his story and photos. Quite a special little guy.

I see Rinaldo was quite a character and I'm glad he had such a long and happy life under your care.

I'd never had budgies before - other extended family members did - and I wanted one. Or two. Or five. He was returned to the pet store, on grounds of "endless fighting". I never knew how old he was when I got him - he has all his adult feathers on the photos I took right after I set him up in his first cage - but given how long he lived with us, he must have been quite young still.
He was survived by his mate Monique and Green; Monique wasn't a rescue, she was a former neighbour-budgie. After we moved, we found that while he was still staying on the other side of the room from our other birds, and refusing to share a cage, he would talk to the neighbour's bird through the walls, which were quite thin. We eventually decided to risk inviting her over - she was a single budgie - and ended up buying her for him from the neighbour. He spent his last three years as a married man. Monique lived with us for another three years and died at the age of twelve, funnily also while we were gone for a holiday.
Green came to us because he turned out to be un-tamable and his owners wanted a hand-tame bird. He was the last bird we had when the moving orgy started, and I left him with my sister, who also had a few rescues at the time. Unfortunatley he kept trying to get at one of her more severely handicapped birds to the point where he had to be rehomed again. The last I heard of him, he was still living in a mostly outdoor aviary with a number of other birds and didn't need to deal with people other than for necessary vet visits, feeding and cleaning. Given that he'd have to be about 17 by now, I strongly assume he has passed in the meantime.
We lost our poor, sweet, flightless Vinz just a few months before Rinaldo, aged barely six months.

Rinaldo has always been special to me, being my first and - possibly with the exception of my current Wellington - most human-centric and tame budgie ever.

Rinaldo Rinaldini was obviously a much loved and very fortunate little fellow to have you to care for him!

The picture of him with his little basil "cap" on his head is simply priceless.

Thank you for sharing your sweet and special budgie's pictures and story with us.

What a cute bird! I love his bright green color! The third photo of him laying on his back and holding the pencil is too cute and funny!

He looks a bit like he's doing barbell exercises He always managed to turn over like that with pens and pencils sooner or later. To the end, he never learned that the prerequisite for turning back the right way up is "first, release the pencil".
