Smile Hey there Delilah!

A simple trip to the pet store this morning to get Khaleesi's special egg food has turned to something completely different.
There was this woman (unsatisfied customer) trying to return a budgie.
I will spare the details, what's more important is that the little one is now safe and sound under my care where she has found permanent residence.

Meet "Delilah", Portuguese translated name Dalila (spelled daleela), she's a young female of about 4 - 5 months old max.

For what she has been through, Dalila is settling in fairly well I have already gotten to know one of her peculiar chirps, as the sun was starting to set she had her first meal and now she is currently sleeping on her swing.

And here she is, she did quite well on her first short photo shoot




I just couldn't help capturing her first night on her swing, welcome to the good life, little one!

Awww, little Dalila is just as sweet as she can be!
Thank you (and karma) for rescuing this precious little girl.
She's very fortunate you happened by the pet store when you did and will indeed be living the good life from now on.

That's great, she will soon come to realize how fortunate she is in having you as her mama.

Aluz,

Congratulations on your beautiful little girl Delilah! She is beautiful, and so very lucky to be rescued by such a loving and knowledgeable birdie mum

I can't wait to see more of her, she will be a great addition to the flock when the time comes, I'm sure

What a sweet surprise ! Delilah is indeed lucky to have crossed paths with you at the exact right timing. This was definitely meant to be. Congratulations on your new girl!

Aw, I love the name! Reminds me of the song I am so happy that you were able to take little Delilah off that lady's hands and into your more than capable ones! Looks like she's an early Christmas gift!

Thank you so much for all of your kind words!

Dalila is doing wonderfully and from what I have seen so far, she seems to have a fun an outgoing personality.
I'm actually quite smitten with my new little ray of sunshine.

These were taken this morning. We are being blessed with sunny days and good temperature, so during the first days of quarantine, Dalila is spending a few hours on the backyard watching the sparrows fly and chirping to them.



She sure knows how to fluff those cheeks


Best close-up pic


If you notice from this latest set, she has two violet beauty marks on both sides of her face (below the cheek patches).
They are symmetrical and I sure hope she won't be losing these coloured feathers on her next moult because they make her extra cute.

Below is a very short video of her all excited and chirping to the sparrows, she has a peculiar flock call, quite short, but it's not the typical baby chirp.
Most likely she has learnt this call from another bird.

I love the cute pics . Dalila's flock call is quite interesting. It does sound as you say, learned from another species. Like a wild bird, maybe a small songbird or finch.

About the violet patches on her face, does that say something about her mutation, or can recessive pied also occasionally have color on the upper body as well as the abdomen?
