Photo Shoot with Local Nature Photographer~

bc male adult2Sorry for the multiple posts in just a couple of days but a lot is happening @ TWFA this week! I promise this is the last for a while. ūüôā

We finally scheduled an aviary photo shoot & I just got the results back. It was incredibly successful and I’m honored to have had Mr. Randy Hume, nature photographer, taking pictures of¬†the aviary. He had plenty of subjects, from the hand-tame free flyers like Miles to the tiny babies whom I was raising by hand. He also had the chance to photograph breeding pairs in their natural environments. There are plenty of Miles candids and even a great action shot of Lilac taking a bath. What a wonderful gift to us! It’s always touching to see works of art with your pets as the subject, and each of these photos has certainly done my flock justice and then some. I’m so happy to have these pictures of them!! Take a look for yourself~

Happy New Year! ~ New Mutations & Toys to Celebrate

~ Happy New Year everyone! ~

I hope everyone’s holidays have been and will continue to be jolly & fabulous! Inside the aviary here we have been celebrating and eating, eating and also eating. Ham on Christmas, steak on new years and soft food for everyone winged – yummy!

My new Fawn, Orange Breast and Penguin mutations have arrived and are settling in nicely. I was so excited to get them, they are so spectacular! I cannot wait to take pictures of them. For now, here is a quarantine cage candid of a rather handsome Fawn OB BB who has such a unique and lovely song. I’m still developing names for them as I see their personalities shine.

I’ve also recently stumbled across some adorable new toys from Prevue that I will most certainly be buying for all of my cages. They’re just so¬†irresistibly¬†cute! They’re from a set appropriately named “Birdie Decor.” In their own words: Birdie D√©cor toys turn your cage into a home for you pet bird.”¬†
