Talking Its 5:30pm and I see some LIGHT outside (still)

It may not mean much to you but I am so looking forward to longer days with light!

SPRING is coming, winter has been dark and dreary but I see the light of day lasting just a little bit longer!

Anybody else getting excited?

I'm excited because it means training the raptors again! When I'm working and not getting home till at least 5 it's usually dark or now getting dark and I don't like flying at sunset unless we're using a creance. Reason being is that the more light you have the better chance you have of getting your bird back should they decide to detour and when I'm home and there's only 30 minutes or so left it's not worth taking the risk. Over the winter I let the birds have a rest, but I haven't flown Chalkie for a few years due to injury and Bandit for a year or so because of moving around a lot. Now we are settled I can finally start flying again once we have lighter nights

That sounds so cool! I'm glad you will be out with the raptors and letting them get back to flight again.

SPX is less noisy at 5:00pm because there is more light. When the darkness comes he kicks up a fuss gets loud and jumps off and on his swing showing me its bed time.

He's going to be in for a surprise when its light out after 9pm in the late evening this summer.

I can imagine how loud that is! I'd like to hear that it must be exciting & fun to watch them all in their aviary.

When SPX gets on a roll I can hear him yapping at me when I'm walking a few houses away from my place on my way to work in the morning. My neighbors have asked what type of bird I have that is so loud which is funny considering its one little budgie.

One little budgie with an incredibly big mouth!

So far so good. Nobody has ever mentioned the noise luckily. Before our old neighbours moved they moaned once that when they look out their bedroom window it looks like a shanty town... I considered that quite rude! It's because my aviairies are big and have corrugated sheets on top. Bit uncalled for. I didn't like their ugly gnomes or the way their out of control dog used to try and climb the fence to get at my hawk barking like crazy every time it left the house (please do approach my hawk... dare ya haha) but I never felt the need to offend them!
