Reckon I could almost insert our S3 in this pic.  We have a conure that takes great delight in stalking him. Unfortunately this means the naughty birdy stays in jail until the little man is in bed lol

Lovely pictures @Shaz51

You can buy one of those Blue & Gold Macaws from the Bird Shop -

- only if you have a spare $17000.....


Re: Birdy Song Birdy Dance

Yikes @Adge  ... did you mistakenly add an extra 0 there?  😮

Re: Birdy Song Birdy Dance

$17000..... what wow @Adge , @Sherry Smiley Surprised

Re: Birdy Song Birdy Dance

Hi @Sherry No that is correct.

$17K or $17000.

Someone is buying them at that price - that's the going rate.

I don't know how they can afford it.


Re: Birdy Song Birdy Dance

Macaws (originally from South America) are available, but very expensive @Shaz51 @Sherry

Australians cannot import birds into the country (generally) - so it's only birds that have been bred here, that you can buy.

Macaws make excellent pets (apparently) - if you can pay that much $$ for one.

Cheep Cheep (Pun intended) @Darcy

That's just what my baby Java finches are doing (in nest).

Their cute little faces poking out through the nest box hole.

One almost fell out, because of being over-curious about what was happening outside the nest.
