My first budgie Milo passed away sometime this morning, We found him less than two hours after his death without rigor. I found him facedown on the cage bars at approximately 8:30 this morning after I fed the cat. He was only two years old and this death was a huge shock to me.
We don't have a place for necropsy here, I'm guessing he must have been sick, The last picture I have of him from yesterday his feathers are ruffled and in bad shape even though he seemed fine and lively as always.
He was very tame, loved doing tricks and was content to sit on a perch with me as I studied.
I am cleaning the cage as there is a bird fair not 15 minutes away from me today, and I'm going to check it out.
I hope you are flying over gods sorghum fields :v) , Milo
Here is the last unflattering picture of him, not how I want to remember him.
Here is the time he found out he could scale the curtains
Here are some baby pictures
If anything, I want other people to relish the time with their bird. Take pictures, make memories. I'm very happy I had collected shed tail feathers which is an easy memento. Share your birds antics and listen to others.
Thank you for listening,
