Not much happening right now. No new conure pictures. I made the jungle gym for her, but not happy with the results so going to remake it. Haven't slept well the last few nights, so am pretty tired, and super unmotivated.

We just heard that our conure's dna results just came back and we are getting a female!!! Hooray! Just what we wanted! Also, here is the cage for our new bird (it has a perch on top, but it was too tall, so I'm cutting it down some) and the travel "cage", affectionately known as the wing-abeggo!:-) It's kinda like Wonder Woman

Saturday we finally got around to burning all the brush and tree limbs we have cut up. We were out there about 2.5 hours putting small bundles onto the fire, one at a time. It burned through today, until Karen finally decided it was enough and watered it until it died. Could have continued smoldering for another day, easily.

Nice place ...... ❤️

Not feeling too great today. Actually, did not feel great yesterday. Not sure if it's the weather yo-yo changes or slight illness. Karen came home early yesterday and stayed home today, also not feeling well. Come on body, stop messing around! No new bird stories. Well, we do have the cage and travel cage together, and ordered some toys and things.

More SQUEEEEE! to come!

We got to visit with and meet the new birds. They were all in a huddle, but after separating them out, we quickly found the one we wanted...he/she kept climbing into our clothes to snuggle. 4 more weeks!!!

Super cute 

The tree out back know they've been in a battle today, and they lost! Sure they fought back and got in a few slashes, punctures and one twisted elbow, but in the end, they were taken down! (see what I did there?) 1.5 or so hours later, I'm exhausted. The crows were out cheering me on, and a few squirrels flung things...

Oh my gods! They are so ugly they are cute.

They are too cute without feathers ❤️❤️

I'm telling you, who would not love this little thing? No, we have not been able to pick one out yet, just hoping soon.

In other news, the carrot pieces are still there. No wildlife here seems to like them.

Conures are such rad birds! I hope you find the perfect one for you soon :)
As the crow experiment continues, they like Cheetos more than Cheez-Its, and definitely Cheez-Its more than carrots. Still, it seems to be the peanuts in shells that bring them to the yard.
Other than that, I miss feeling useful.
