Boo continues to Distract

There has been no more nesting activity since Boo returned. The weather has been fantastic, and the budgies all eat the greens provided with great gusto. Mary ann has become thinner: although she seems well, she is much less interested in Sutcliffe. He occasionally looks into the nest box and feeds her, but not to the extent previously. Our little experiment will move indoors in a few weeks. At that point, we will put on a lamp for a 12 hour day, and put boo in a different room (and on a different floor). In the meantime, the budgies are a lot of fun to watch as they play with their food! Especially Boo, who seems to think that the purpose of eucalyptus is to provide something he can tear apart and throw on the ground.
