Mary Ann and Sutcliffe in Solitary

We had the screens on the screened in porch replaced, mandating budgie moving. As a result, Mary ann and Sutcliffe have been moved for the duration (ie, till we change our minds about it) to the basement. The basement is not as grim as it sounds: because we live on a slope, there is a large, nice window that provides a great deal of light. Still, their cage is in a storage area. I doubt they mind, as budgies have a different feng shui than humans it seems. We have put the light on a timer to allow twelve hours, and basically, will provide a ton of food and leave them alone. The webcam is set up to monitor the nest box, but, not the rest of the activity. Its hard to gauge if this strategy is working incrementally, but, there is no significant improvement in nest box interest.

Putting two budgies together in solitary, only to find no improvement in nestbox improvement, is truly zen!
