Uh oh...

Buffy cute!

Daughter and I went to a bird show yesterday.  No intention of buying a bird of course!  We had a lovely look around at all the pretties, and I got to meet a few folk off Smiley's bird forum.  :~D

But this little darling was irresistible!  Full of personality and the prettiest blue I've seen in a Quaker parrot.  Handraised, so she's very friendly, and she has been DNA sexed, so we know for sure she's a girl.  And we got her for half the price we'd usually pay for a hand-reared Quaker.  So what if we have to live on soup for the week?!  Heh.

Now we just need to give her a NAME.  ;~P

She has the most gorgeous, growly sort of voice, and does this little chirrup that sounds for all the world like "Uh oh!"  XD

Heh. Yes, they are my drug of choice, and my daughter is a terrible enabler! They ALWAYS make me smile and feel happy. And I know it will be utterly tragic when they die (many yrs from now!), but you can't have the joy without the sadness. I can still get teary thinking about my wee budgie, Merlin, and he's been dead for 22yrs! This little lady should be with us for at least 30yrs!
