Daisy (Dolittle)

Hello Everyone!

Just wanted to show you the newest member of our soon to be family. This is Daisy, but I call her Daisy Dolittle. She’s a parakeet and a feisty one too. As you can see in this picture I have her tail… I’m holding her against her will, sometimes she will be completely okay with sitting on your finger, and other times she couldn’t be more annoyed.

Here is one of her in her cage. She has small living quarters, but she gets to fly around the room.

And here is one of her on one of her perches in the room. She likes to be up high on the look out. Leah had a bird a while ago, and his name was Ritz, he was all about going for walks on the carpet, but Daisy isn’t too keen on being down so low yet. (And for those of you who are wondering how on earth you know what the gender is… male parakeets have blue nostrils, and females have pink)

Okay, ya'll need to clarify who is doing posting. When I first saw the picture of the bird on the hand I thought to myself "My, what manly hands Leah has." Then I continued to read and realized that it was Jon's hand.

Anywho, I'm here to say we got your invitation today and it is beautiful!

Parakeets--That does take me back. I believe most of your dad's were green with a blue one thrown in for good measure. And then there was the record someone bought to try--unsuccessfully--to try to teach it to talk. Daisy is certainly a "pretty bird"!
