Timmy the bird - doing well.

Post by Stormy » Sun Apr 23, 2006 2:05 pm

Just an update on the luckiest bird in the world :-D

I had to creatively move her perches around and put the mirror down near the lowest perch before she was "happy" with the arrangement. She is now back to eating like a pig more than a bird, because she can hop down to the floor a few inches to eat and drink while keeping an eye on her "friend" in the mirror. She is eating so much and spends all the rest of her time with the mirror, that every day there is an artistic pile of birdy doo doo right below her perch lol. She even brings seeds up to the mirror and tries to "feed" her friend. She talks to her friend and even does some morning "dances" and "song" with her :lol:

In the mornings, she still is obviously not right as it takes her a bit of time to get "straitened" out, but she's learned to compensate for her handicaps. As long as she doesn't get too excited, she's OK.

I have learned though that my initial ID was wrong - she is not a female purple finch, she is a female house finch. Very similar birds in both male and female forms, but the purple finch female has a white patch on the face which Timmy does not have.

Hurray!!!


Glad you got that mirror thing figured out. She'll be a fat and happy round ball of feathers in no time. :-D

Timmy is just a gorgeous bird... period.

I'm glad she's getting better, perhaps in time, she'll be back up to snuff.

Looks great and still cute!
