I don't know why I thought of this, but looking at everyone's budgies inspired me, I guess :laughing:
SO hear me out:

Everyone write a poem for someone else's budgie!
No, it doesn't have to be good.

If all else fails, write a Haiku--
5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

I'm just really curious to see what you guys come up with!

Here's mine:


Skipper and Scooter, owned by FaeryBee (Deb)

Scooter and Skipper, as you come in a pair
You talk and you squawk and you play with Deb's hair
You are adventurous, and chivalrous but also quite sly--
Who knows on what secret mission you two will spy!

Skipper and Scooter, as you're always together
No wonder the saying is "Birds of a feather"
The ladies all swoon when they see you fly in
Blue and white, white and blue, look at those handsome men!

Alright, okay, okay. But I'm not as good with words as you are Star, so please be kind...

Gigi studyin'
On her Violin
Was feeling lone
All on her own
Then you were born
Princess Mallorn
And since that day
Hip-hip-hooray
Neve is happy
On Talk Budgie!

(yeah, I know I cheated a little at the end)

Do you notice how I managed to use all your nicknames though?

Clouds is my name, cool is my game,
I'm a little bit shady and sometimes vain.

I live like a king, with a golden swing,
And every so often I like to sing.
Thanks Niamh! That is so cool :2thumbs: Téo is going to be really chuffed when I show him.

It sounds like you've met Clouds and been in our house.
Hey, now that I know about Noah's talent for stealth, maybe I should start getting paranoid? :spy:

Yellow and green, with a nice glossy sheen,
Is my feathery coat that I like to preen.

My parents adore me, my brothers deplore me,
But megabacteria simply floors me.

I love my huffs and I sneak pastry puffs,
From WA, my name is Budget
Clouds is my name, cool is my game,
I'm a little bit shady and sometimes vain.

I live like a king, with a golden swing,
And every so often I like to sing.
And ladies and gentlemen, not one, but two lovely poems from Miss Niamh!
Loved them, nice job ;)

Hi,

This is Téo. Thank you for the lovely poem. I'm going to keep it.

This is my poem for your bird:

Noah is shiny
Just like the sun
The red forehead
Is like dawn on his head

:)

I would like to ask you what kind of bird is Noah?

Oh thank you Téo, I love your poem and Noah will too :D
Noah is a Kakariki (which means small parrot in Maori) - the breed originates from New Zealand.

I'm glad Clouds is settling in well - he has clearly found himself a great home :):budgie:

Sorry I'm on a role they could just keep coming :D




My name says it all, it's crystal clear,
That I am your Princess, to me you adhere.

I'm turquoise and yellow, with a spec of blue,
And if you MUST come to meet me, please polish your shoes.

I'm a trend setter, millet eating, cuteness overload,
Now hail to Mallorn, you peasants young and old!

This is Téo again.

I know kakariki because we are learning that it is green in our maori lessons at school. But your kakariki is yellow.

I have seen some kakariki at an aviary near my house. My friend's mom is keeping an eye on them before they go back to the wild.

Oh wow that's wonderful that you got to meet some. Yes green is their natural colour in the wild and helps them to camouflage better :)

(This is Dee now, Téo has gone to bed)

We'll make sure to take some pictures and post them next time we go to visit the aviary. In fact, I was planning an excursion just this week, as soon as the weather clears anyway ;)

It's a beautiful conservation project. They are so successful in reinserting those rare and endangered birds that quite a few species are starting to spill out of the reserve and into our gardens!

My friend Tamsin, who runs the whole thing, is also Téo's best friend's mom, so we have had the luck to visit many times as well as go on 'kiwi' hunts to try and find kiwi babies that had recently been released, hold them and feed them too :D

Anyway, I promise we'll have some picture's of Noah's cousins soon!
