Normally I check on the birds as soon as I get home from work. Today I was behind schedule, I stayed an hour later at work, and had to walk home because of the massive snow storm we are having (almost two feet of snow!)
So it was dark by the time I made it into the bird room. And this is how I found Bandit sleeping (or at least trying to!)
Lol!! Silly Bandit! You are a budgie, not a bat! You can't sleep upside down all night long.
I scooped her up after the pic was taken and placed her on a perch instead.
(The poop you see in the pic fell off as soon as she was upright again).
So cute! Look at that little face . I have one out of 5 birds who loves to do the bat regularly, he's not a budgie. I don't believe I've ever seen my budgies do that! I especially doubt Mink my English would try it, she's not real agile lol.
Haha, I see you got quite the surprise upon arriving home! Bandit, the Batgirl!
I see that particular position many times with my lovebirds and as to the budgies, I have two great climbers that make very good use of the cage's bars and the cage's ceiling at times. Tito Junior and Goldilocks take the prize for being the most bat-like.
That's so cute. I sometimes wonder how they can be comfortable in the positions they get in. My budgies don't often do that but my Linnies hang like that quite often and flap their wings like mad and then they love for me to mist them in that position.
