TALK BUDGIES BUDGIE OF THE MONTH
MAY 2013​

OK -- just wait a minute!

Before any of you feel you must make a snarky comment I KNOW I'm not a budgie!

However, my Mom and The Sunshine Boys are very busy working on the Talk Budgie Bird Show this month.
Therefore, I will be the contest coordinator for the Budgie of the Month Contest for May of 2013!

Now that we have all THAT out of the way…

The Challenge:

PREENING INTERUPTED​

Don't even TRY to pretend you don't preen! ALL birds preen and you know how aggravating it is when you
are right in the midst of enhancing your natural beauty and someone decides to rudely interrupt you.

So - show us those pictures!!

One lucky budgie will be the winner of this challenge. The owner will receive 50 karma points and the winning budgie
will be automatically entered into the Talk Budgies Budgie of the Year Contest to be held in December.

Don't dally! Get those pictures in now!

This challenge will close on May 25th and the winner will be announced on May 31st!

Hellooooo!! Where is EveryBirdie?

I happen to KNOW that lots of you budgies have pictures of when your preening was interrupted. Why, oh why isn't anyone entering my contest. :pout:

And -- the fact that you all are getting ready for the Talk Budgie Bird Show is not an acceptable excuse :rolleyes:

Not sure if it counts really since its hardly interrupted.. its just preening lol

Its a dodgy photo because of the setting sun bouncing off the living room blinds, meh.

Freki, darling, that is a preen-perfect entry!

Anytime someone snaps my photo when I'm grooming my gorgeous feathers I consider it an interruption. :giggle:

But, I'm gorgeous anyway so I guess it doesn't really matter.

You were very kind to submit the very FIRST entry, Freki xoxo

Now, let's see some more of those "preening" pictures, Everybudgie!!

Here is Leonel's kind of scary face when I interrupted him mid preening.
He didn't have time to put on his usual cute, pretty face. :eek:



Suggestion for next month: Wet budgies.

OK, here we go... Thanks Cuttlefish!

Audrey is our entry this month. She is the prettiest of our flock (at least according to Cuttlefish), but has to spend lots of time preening to make sure she stays as beautiful as possible!


Our suggestion for next month would be budgies at play.

:laughing: Needs the music from "Jaws" in the background! I like those veggie clips you have there - where did you score those?
:giggle: yes the Jaws music would be perfect!

The clips came from various pet shops, the red one was in Speedy's old cage so that's really old now, but its the best one we've got! The others are OK, but they don't open wide enough. I'm sure you'll be able to find them easily enough :D

Can there be two budgies in the picture - one preening
the other? Or just one preening itself? :)
