Merlin The Bird
 
I am very sad to report that Merlin passed away today, at the ripe age of 10 years old. His human, Emma, was not a member of Talk Budgies, but his age and good looks are a testimony to how well he was loved and cared for.
I discovered him on facebook, fell in love, and followed him for years, eventually making this film; it's one of my favorites of all that I have done. (Please let it load fully before playing - press the play button, then pause it immediately, until it is loaded all the way)

Rest in peace, wonderful little man - you brought great joy to many

Rest in Peace, sweet handsome Merlin. Ollie, your film is a great tribute to a very special character. Heaven is a little bit brighter today now that Merlin is there. May Emma keep Merlin in her heart forever. Thank you for sharing him with us.

Thank you, Susan - you have always been so faithful to watch and comment on my films - I really appreciate you!
Merlin is in my heart forever, too - I feel as if I got to know him personally, as I do with so many budgies here at Talk Budgies

I know exactly how you feel. Budgies are so special. I love to see their photos, hear their stories. And I am sad when they are no longer with us. Unfortunately, I have no talent to pay tribute to them. That is why I enjoy your films so much. You do it perfectly.

I didn't know Merlin, but from this wonderful tribute video I can see how special he was.
He clearly had a family who loved him very much and took excellent care of him.
I send my deepest condolences to them.

Rest in peace, handsome Merlin. You were much loved and will be missed.

So sorry for Merlin's passing. He looks very much like Artoo but seems to have much more charisma than my boy. I'm sure his 10yrs with Emma was with filled with love and tender loving care, and your video summarized it beautifully.:hug:

Ollie,
The tribute you made for darling little Merlin is wonderful and I'm certain Emma will treasure it always.
What an incredible life the little fellow had -- filled with love, adventure and fun.
Thank you for sharing the video showing the 10 wonderful years Emma was privileged to share with this incredibly lovable budgie.

Fly high and free sweet Merlin; rest peacefully little man.
