Tonka is on a distinguished road
Default Nymphrodora "Tonks"

May 9th I brought home my little hen. She was just 7 weeks old
Her colouring i was told was a YF Spangled
I fell head over heels in love with my little spaz girl, Spaz i say because i busted her flirting with the cock in the next cage (i have a cock and Hen together and had her cage beside them) and she was trying to lay on the perch...on her back. spaz! But Tonks was named for Nymphrodora off Harry potter because the character could change her hair to all colours this name appealed to me as Tonks's feathers were mottled like.
I spoke to a friend that works at our local pet store and she told me how to clip her wings correctly and I followed the instructions and yet Tonks still managed QUITE WELL
She was very chirpy of a morning chattering away while i made my cuppa and LOVED to whistle along to my country music.

July 31st 2013 at 18 weeks old, I came home one evening after being out for a few hours, Tonks had been fine that morning and chirpy as normal but when i entered the kitchen and found her looking puffy, i opened the cage and put my hand in and she came to me at once. (which was a clear sign of something wrong as normally she would refuse to come out of the cage) I moved the cage to the lounge room where we were so i could keep an eye on her and settled her back in the cage. 10 minutes later i checked her and found her sitting on the floor her head down, i scooped her gently out with the intention of wrapping her in a towel and snuggling her to warm her but within minutes her beautiful life ended in my hands.
I was devastated, plus being 35 weeks pregnant it was a definate blow to the hormones. the next day i buried her in a planter box with a beautiful flower on the end of the pot (will be putting in more flowers)
I know shes now at peace n in no pain.

Resting In Peace

I'm so sorry for your loss of little Tonks. It's never easy to lose such a beloved pet, especially so young still.
Rest in peace, beautiful Tonks. You were much loved and will be missed.

Poor little bird. Sometimes budgies like acting strong, so they cover up their weakness, but sometimes they're too brave and don't realise that if we don't know their sick, they can't get any better. If that makes sense that is.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure she is happily playing in rainbow bridge with all the other birds.

Little darling - sometimes we just have to accept that even though so young, our little friends are taken from us. Let your memories comfort you, fly free Tonks

It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort.

Fly High and Free little one -- Rest In Peace.

thank you all so much for the kind words. Tonks is defiantly missed as she was apparently the REALLY big on the mornings bird, the other two are so quiet of a morning lol she was the one that had them riled into noise of a morning. I miss her chirps while im making my cuppa of a morning.

She also was nutty over the cock in the other cage but not fond of he hen so she was in her own cage, the one time i put her in with them she kept striking out with her beak at the hen and cuddling up to the cock, i went to kitchen one day and she was attempting to lay on her back on her perch, but realized quickly she needed to hang on or fall so she ended up hanging funny upside down flirting at him.

I'm so sorry to hear that Tonks has gone on.
It's so hard to lose a bird you love, and I think
it's even worse when they're so young -- I always
feel cheated out of the years we should have
had together. But she had a good life with you,
even if it was short, and she was loved. No little
bird could ask for more.

We've a new star joining our flock at The Bridge.
Fly free, little Tonks.
