PONCHO AND LEFTY

I am sorry to say that Leftina has gone to Rainbow Bridge,
where she will fly around free to her hearts content.
.
But poor Poncho was sad, all alone in his cage.
.
So meet his buddy Lefty.
Lefty is the one that is mostly white with tan markings.
Quite different I thought.
I do not know if you can see it, but Lefty has a sort of punk rock hair-do on top of his head that I just love. Lefty is a Society finch.
.
Poncho is a Gouldian finch. He is the one with all the bright colors.
.
I am pretty sure Lefty is a boy, by the way they hang out together.
They do seem like good buddies.
.
I have 2 videos, I just wish I also had sound,
as the little sounds and chirps they make constantly is just so nice to listen to.
.
The long white dish you see in the middle, on the floor, is a dish I found that is just perfect as a bath, and everytime I put their bath out, they get very active.
It is fun to watch.
I still have not been able to catch them bathing.
.
The second video they have calmed down some.

  4. Oh, I love them! I almost bought some birds once, but then I thought of Velvet and realized it would probably create a stressful environment, lol. I'll just have to enjoy your sweeties. They seem to be best buds!
