Default Sparky's beginning to acclimate!

Sparky's beginning to acclimate a bit now.

Today, I sat in the bedroom with him and left his cage door open. We were listening to CDs and he particularly seemed to enjoy my company. I sat in my chair across the room and just let him do his own thing. After a while, she started stretching and now and then would let out a small chirp. A couple of times he even bobbed his head.

He flew back and forth in the cage a couple of times. (First I've actually seen him do that!) Sparky also enjoyed excercising his wings by holding onto the perch and flapping like a little hummingbird,

Suddenly, all on his own, he decided to venture out of the cage. Since his wings are slightly clipped, he can't get much lift, (maybe about 3 feet) but he tries hard and is able to fly short distances. When he landed on the carpet, he couldn't get enough lift to make it back up to his cage so I "rescued" him and put him on his little playgym. He seemed to enjoy it and sat there looking around and checking out his reflection in the mirror.

When I went to get him to put him back in the cage, he wasn't at all sure he wanted to leave my hand.
Then he hopped back in and onto his favorite perch.

I think his first "solo" outing was quite successful and I'm very proud of him.

Here are a few pictures I took to commemorate his "first steps".

This playground isn't too bad.



Hey! Look at ME, Momma!



Is there another birdie over there?



Sorry about the quality of this one -- too much light from the window washed out his color.



Thanks for looking at my new baby!

Erika, I was very surprised he decided to come out for a short adventure. He has seemed so timid and nervous after the long trip here last week and the three cage moves. It feels great to realize he's beginning to feel a bit more confident now.

How lovely for you, watching him get braver and starting to explore.... he'll own the place before you know it I bet. Thanks for the photos, he is such a handsome chap - his colour is really quite incredible isn't it... I wonder if he knows that

Thanks, Vicky! I'm really hoping that Sparky will enjoy playing outside the cage once he's more comfortable with his new surroundings. He's definitely going to be flyer if he has anything to say about it! He's exercised those little wings several times today now.

Also, I know I owe you pictures of him for the 2013 Talk Budgie Calendar. He isn't about to be outdone by Sunny and Shelby.

I think he does know he's cute -- he has a bit of the
"Hey, look at ME" air about him.
