This week I took some pics of the budgie flock in preparation for Peppy's 2nd hatchday which is today, March 27th.
Little did I know when I came here today that Leonel had won this month's contest.
The whole flock of 14 were given special treats today to mark the two special occasions.
Here is the birthday girl, Peppy
A head shot of Leonel, I caught him in the beginning of a puff up and he was starting to get his "lion's mane".
The power couple
Next is birdie model, little miss Goldilocks
In tune young couple copying the same expression
Luigi was too hyper and as a result I couldn't get a decent solo photo of him
My sweet girl Dinda and shy boy Tito Junior. I caught Dinda mid puff.
I think Tito Junior wants to dethrone Leonel with his beak wide open.
"Do I have any food stuck on my throat?"
Another one: "How is my breath?" Tito Junior is not aggressive and has never hurt Dinda nor any other birdie.
He is all talk and no real bite, it was just harmless bickering among siblings.
