Pictures are about 3 years old .
Yesterday I discovered my male parakeet, Pastrami, face down dead in his cage. He was having no health issues. I have to assume he had a night terror in his sleep while I was at work and he hit his head.
I've been sleeping on and off ever since yesterday.
I'm still numb and in shock at the same time.
If I don't respond to you , it's not personal. I just barely have energy right now.
Thanks for your understanding. ---- #parakeet#parakeets#budgies#budgerigar
Just about 2 years ago I had an idea (before I really got into painting birds at all really) to do a parakeet series of the avengers. I started with "Captain Amerikeet" and went on to painting parakeet versions of The Hulk and Thor, etc, but only finished three. I have gone back to this now that I've had a bit more practice and here is my new and improved "Captain Amerikeet". If you swipe to the picture at the end you can see the original that started it all :) #art#parakeet#improvement#captainamerica#theavengers#marvel#shield#america#acrylic#painting#bird#patriotic
I made a new friend today at a birdshow! He had a thing for my glasses at first lol
In case anyone's interested that is a Burrowing Parrot and probably my new favourite parrot. They have a real gentle personality and are really curious little treasures. So far I've only seen them at a Zoo but it seems like you can keep them as pets and that's probably what I'm gonna do when I have enough space and money sometime in the future.
Also if you have birds and come into contact with a stranger's bird, always make sure to change clthes and wash yourself before seeing your own birds, you don't want to transfer some possible diseases from the stranger's bird to your own! .
