Default A long awaited update, and Tilda

Hello everyone!

I think I'd better warn you now, there's going to be lots of pictures, now and in the near future. Although I'm sure you won't mind, you silly picture-gobbling gremlins

So, here's an update on how things are at the moment!

Things have been pretty insane lately, lots to do and only 24 hours in which to do it! Of course, 23 of those hours have to be dedicated to Talk Budgies (ok, no, just kidding) because as we all know by now, I have a small (large?) addiction to cute birds and great people

Anyways, because of that, all the pictures I'm posting stretch all the way back to the end of December

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone's day or night is as wonderful as can be!

First up: Snow pictures for all you Aussies (and otherwise) who are stuck in icky hot weather.

A hike in our beautiful mountains...

This was taken sometime in January. We had a huge snow day and all of this came down in just a few hours! It was loads of fun, though. We all drank some good, thick hot cocoa and basically did nothing all day. Great fun!


Of course, I couldn't resist getting a little artsy


Meanwhile, around the same time was where that one thread popped up about foods you feed your budgies, and I promised a picture. Well, 4567812 years later, here it is:


It has seed, cooked brown rice, chopped parsley, shredded carrot, tumeric, cayenne pepper, chopped celery leaves, a little ginger, pellets, and broccoli. Mallorn loved picking at it, even if she didn't eat much, but it froze really well so I just made ice cubes out of it and they lasted me all the way up until the end of February! At the moment I have to find time to make another batch of birdie recipes, for now she's getting her veggies hung from her cage or chopped in a separate dish again.

Next order of business: Miss Tilda! She's grown very close to my sister and cuddles with her daily. Her favourite spot to relax is on top of the office computer, which, being older, tends to overheat. She loves it! She just flops down on the keyboard and naps for hours

Mallorn doesn't really understand how one could sit still for that long!

Here she is deciding where to sit--



Meanwhile, Mallorn was still trying to be friends with Tilda, but they seem to have reached a mutual agreement where they really are indifferent towards one another and have consented to be harmonious neighbours

Mallorn was out at the same time as Tilda a month or so ago, and just popped right in!

I was right there the whole time, however, and nothing aggressive or violent was going on. Mallorn kept trying to convince Tilda to preen by scooting close and fluffing her feathers, but Tilda was having none of it and said "Go preen yourself", so Mallorn said "You don't even know what preening is, little peasant" and Tilda snapped "I guess I wouldn't since I don't have a good role model" so Mallorn...well, you get the idea.

Note: Never leave two species of birds together unattended out of the cage! That's just a bad idea.

Trying to preen Tilda




Finally, we'll finish with this lovely portrait of our serene, calm dove Lady Tilda:


Now, there is an enourmous amount of Mallorn pictures I'll get up soon--like, over 30

I hope you enjoyed this first set of pictures and be on the lookout for some updated Princess Mallorn (she just has to have her own thread, doesn't she )

Thanks for the update Wow Tilda is so beautiful! I'm so glad she has settled in so well too and loves cuddles
Haha poor Mallorn she's certainly very curious; I have a feeling that poor Tilda will have to cave sooner or later and let Her Majesty preen her!!

What a yummy dish I could just eat that myself!!

I love the snow pictures too - oh how i miss snow

Yay photos from StarlingWings ! That's always something I look forward to! I love how you have pics of different things in your threads .

What beautiful scenery you have there. It's been a long while since I've been in the mountains. Your pics make me want to go!!

I always love the Tilda and Mallorn pics. Those two girls are precious . The food looks great too. Looking forward to seeing photos from the Princess' own photo shoot .

Thanks for sharing Gigi!

What fantastic pictures.

I have a soft spot for Tilda. A dove in a pet shop years ago was what made me want a bird again. It took a while before I ended up doing anything about it and I didn't get a dove but maybe one day.... Until then I'll enjoy beautiful Tilda.

Starling Wings, Tilda is such a beautiful, gentle looking bird, and of course, Mallorn is ALWAYS beautiful. The meal you made for her looks yummy. I'm so glad that you said that Mallorn only ate a small amount, because Damon only eats a tiny amount of his nice meals too. I see pictures of the yummy looking meals that forum members post on here, and I wonder how their birds could eat that much. - it looks such a huge amount of food for a wee bird. What a good idea to freeze portions in an ice cube tray. I will certainly do that. Thanks for sharing.

It's always wonderful to get an update on Princess Mallorn and Lady Tilda!

I'm glad they've now agreed to be "harmonious neighbors".

I'm looking forward to the 30+ picture thread of HRH soon!

How lovely, it's good to see the Princess Mallorn trying to reach out to Tilda!
I'm also happy that your sister has bonded well with Tilda, she's beautiful and seems to be a really sweet dove! Thanks for updating!
