and this was taken yesterday!!



and somehow this ugly little bird......


..... has become this stinking cute little "Baby Bird"!!!

I definitely don't think he was ugly before! But he does look better. He is in much better condition and he looks very happy

well i wouldnt go as far to say perfect the only way to get him out of the cage is to have him hop on my hand and bite it -__- he is very sneaky

My favorite of how much they can change with good care and diet is Ricky.
Eastern Rosella.
Here he is at the rescue before I adopted him.


And just a year later.


And my fav shot


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

wow his feather condition is perfect!! what a gorgeous budgie

love that rosella too! a before\after page is an awesome idea.

Ollie's changed a lot - especially her feathers!

first day home

when she was sick with respiratory and yeast infections

and now her feathers are so much more vibrant and she's so much happier.
