We are ALIVE! We are learning about our new bird. First, that she is a "she". Second that she is a baby, only about 6 months old, which is perfect for taming. Third, that she likes to sing for us. Finally... that she's an escape artist.

Our new little Buttercup is tiny, much smaller than Esther and she's able to fit between the bars anytime she wants. If she wants to hang out by the window, or in the coffee tree - she can do it whenever she wants.

But then those humans come by with the big scary net to return her to her home.

We have to be very careful to keep windows and doors closed, since we never know when Buttercup might be out in the open! We lost our first bird (Bob) because she was out of the cage while the doorwall was open.

We are looking to get Buttercup a new cage. The one we're considering is pretty expensive at $370. It's difficult preferring finer things, while being frugal. Maybe we can find something on Craigslist.

Big cage for a tiny bird, but we think she would really enjoy it. We want out jailbird to be a comfortable and healthy as possible!

Do you have any bird stories to share?

I have a parrot, someday I will upload some pictures of her, with me, she is very tame, but one day when I was changing her cage she got scared by a dog and ran away, thank God she came back three days later quite malnourished and skinny, she recovered, and she is still with me, I have 21 years with her.

My husband once told me he wanted to get a bird home. I thought it didn't make sense bringing a bird home. Here in Africa, there are things we find really strange and having a bird as a pet is one of them.

Somehow, I just admire how you talk about your pet. Seems it won't be a bad idea to bring one home.

Funny your 2 posts with yesterday's. Seems like your neighbor didn't find a lost bird but an escapist one :D
Do you consider renaming it Houdini? ;)

That cage already looks quite tight for the grills and yet it still can escape. Woa, it definitely need some skills.

Wow, she is really a beautiful small bird. I know she will enjoy the much comfort on offer by you. The jailbird will be happy at last.

Buttercup is a cute little escape artist! lol!

And I have loads of bird stories, mainly with chickens and turkeys as the protagonists, with an occasional peacock and raptor in attendance too.

So happy you got your new family member all settled in, I hope you score an awesome new cage!

That makes it tough when she can fit through the bars of the cage. Good luck finding a solution.
