Happy Boos-day, Jan 15th 2008

Can you believe that Boo was conceived just about one year ago this week? It was a week we traveled to Miami, the Everglades, and Key West. We didn't have a webcam in those days, so can't know precisely the day of laying of the Boo egg, nor of hatching (the latter, we think, is around Valentines a year ago).
Boo is in a cage all by himself now. That is soon to change however! We got a big new cage, with a single divider in it. Because Sutcliffe and the baby will likely continue their convalescence in one part of that, Boo is destined to have to pair with Mary ann and Mia. (The latter two are currently sharing a tiny cage: there is usually a bit of a face off, with what seems to be glaring from opposite perches for those two). It will be interesting to see how Boo interacts with these two grouchy gals. I think "he" is as "she" which will mean, she has to find her place in that female pecking order! Assuming Mia is female, that is. Sigh. It is so complicated being a budgie. And a budgie guardian.
