Default Lyric updates (Ongoing Thread)

I got Lyric on the 4th October 2016 and I can't be sure on her age as she was a petshop budgie. She settled in reasonably well, or so I thought. By day 3 she was well adjusted to her cage, food and water. Bounced around a few times a day between naps and started making noises. She had 2 sounds. A squeak in reply to sound and an almighty screech like she was being attacked which she used when she was energetic or heard a bird outside.
I started putting my hand in the cage once she appeared curious of me (the little head tilt is to die for!) She often used my hand as a perch to hop on and off when she was bouncing around. Then slowly, 3 weeks in, she started moving away from my hand and getting as far away as possible from it. I figured she was now truly comfortable with her territory and saw me as a stranger. I backed. Kept talking to her and sitting near her cage. During that time she got her voice. She has so many beautiful sounds! My favourite is the quiet chortling she does when she's all fluffed up and ready for a nap.
In the last few days she's started moulting. Feathers, feathers EVERYWHERE! Today as the weather has improved she got her first taste of outside while I tidied up around her cage and she is loving it! Today I also put my finger through the bars on her cage near her and she did her sweet head tilt, hopped over and pecked me. I'm pretty excited by that. I'm guessing that means she's not so much scared as interested by me. There's still a chance I can have a hand tamed little friend!
Here are a few pics of my sweet little baby today, enjoying the sun, breeze and chirping with the local Australian fauna.

That's a wonderful update! It sounds like little Lyric has definitely settled in wonderfully and I can tell she's learning that you're not someone to be feared

Congratulations on your progress, I can't wait to hear more!

Lyric is beautiful.

Please be sure you are always right there supervising when you have her cage outdoors for sun and fresh air. We've had people on the forum who've lost their budgies to predators (including hawks) so it is important to be vigilant.

Also, I'd recommend you have extra clamps, locks or ties securing all the doors to her cage when it is outdoors.

Best wishes!

Thank you for the helpful hints FaeryBee. I'll certainly get some clips on the doors next time. We don't have hawks around the suburbs of Melbourne but we have plenty of crows so I'll be sure and stay vigilant.

You are most welcome and I look forward to seeing lots more pictures of your beautiful Lyric in the days to come.
