Road Trip to get Sophie

I will post a thread explaining more.
But this vid is a few short bits joined. They are my first up close encounter with Sophie.
The round trip was 800kms.

And this is one of her getting a good soaking.
She has only been with me 4wks and this is the second time I have got the spray bottle out. Oh! the Cockatiel is Indy. A Tiel I have in looking for a new home.

When I met here.


And the newest shot.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

Female eclectus look so pretty and fuzzy, like a stuffed animal rather than a real bird. She is so beautiful.

Here is an updated photo of her to show how well she has done since being with me.
Her feathers look so much better. I put this down to good diet and a happy bird in a good environment.
Mind you I think the camera flash sets her colours off.


All this has been achieved without any supplements or any processed foods. Just good fresh foods including sprouts. and all within 13weeks.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

I absolutely love the misting video! What a stunning creature. So glad you have her now. For a parent raised bird she is VERY steady
