Stefan, what a beauty. :D That is such a gentle face.

After the loss of our dear little Sky, the house turned very quiet with no more bird song! :(

So 16 days ago we decided to adopt a new little fella! :dance:

Meet Spike

WP_20161218_13_36_12_Pro.jpg

He is a bright boy and only took 7 days to get him trained to come out of the cage and enjoy the views. He does fly in the two rooms, just like Sky did, but training is still in progress for him to safely find his home again, we have to guide him, but getting there! :D
He allows one to stroke and touch him :)
Yesterday he started to jump onto our arms and back onto his perch on top of his cage! 8)
Enjoys singing and has brought different chirping sounds back into our home! :D
He has settled in well and seems to be happy in his new home, with the 'old people' :tongue:
