Meeting Face to Face
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Niamh and her fiance Luke in real life. I had a great afternoon getting to know them and I felt like I had known them for years.

The first surprise I had for Niamh is that I knew how to pronounce her name correctly. It is not pronounced how it is written as it is in old Gaelic spelling. The second surprise I had for her is that I had my 2 baby Scaley Breasted Lorikeets that I am hand raising with me and she got to hold one. They also got to meet my Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Charlie. And yes I did take some pictures. I know a couple of the pictures of the baby Scaley with Niamh is outside but it is only still a baby and doesn't have any flight feathers yet. It is still about 3 weeks off fledging so it could not go anywhere on its own. Not something I would do if they were able to fly and would not recommend it to anyone else to do if their bird was fledged even if it was clipped. Where we were I could not take them inside. Here they are.

I hope we can get together again as I had a lovely time.

Wow Kate that is wonderful that you got to meet Niamh and her fiance.. Are they your birds they are so cute... I got the pleasure to meet Niamh for real on Skype she is a very nice person. I hope to get to meet the both of you in person one day when I come to Sydney to see my Aunt....

I am glad Niamh. By the way the soup was delicious last night and I am having another big bowl tonight.

Thanks Julie. I have been hand raising them since they were around 10 days old. They are really doing well and are around 4 weeks old now. I haven't hand raised any birds for a couple of years and it is always a joy to watch them grow and become beautiful birds.

Yes Lyn they are my birds. I have the parents and hopefully they will have a couple of more soon. You know that I hope to meet you one day when you come to Sydney for a visit. We will have to try to organize it so that we all meet up together. Both Niamh and Luke are lovely and so much fun.
