    Great pics! I love it when they still have that pterodactyl look. And they get so cute when they're covered in pin feathers.

    So I noticed one of the three babies must have been brave enough to fly out of the nest early this week, I have lifted him ( it? ) off the bottom of the cage and placed it back in the nest with his siblings 3 or 4 times now.
    So I go up just now hoping to maybe take some new pics of them, I open the door to their room, and OMG!! birds flying everywhere!! The bottom sliding door was open about 3 inches and I suppose 1 by 1 they made a break for it.
    Hilarious these finches, one or two land on my shoulder as I am trying to capture another. I swear they do that on purpose to distract me from grabbing any of them.
    All are safe and sound back in the cage.
    Poor Mr. Budgie trapped in his cage alone had " flight envy" I am sure watching them all flutter about the room.

    So here are 2 new pics of them!! Enjoy.

    Oh my, sooooo cute! How on earth do you catch a flying finch? With a net? I always used to clip the flight feathers so they could sit on top of their cage or on a wooded towel rack.

    Funny, now I am an old pro at it ( catching them) but the first time I saw them all sitting on the top OUTSIDE of the cage ( oh and they looked EVIL all in a row staring right at me) well I screamed like Tippi Hendren!!
    I called DH and he helped me wrangle them back in.
    I personally use a small hand towel now, and I toss it over each bird one at a time then gently gather it and put them back that way.
    I have on occasion did it bare handed but some of them are bitey McNasty!, so I figure why get bit if I don't have to?
    I am too chicken to ever clip feathers, I'd be afraid of them bleeding to death from my incompetence. DH used to clip the feathers of our cockatiel ( Marlin) I could never watch that either!
    I am kind of excited to watch the colours of these new ones feather's when they grow in, to see what sex they are and then they have that funny stage where you just know they are the equivalent of a teenager.
    They act all proud and they strut about like they own the cage, but you just see they are so much younger, oh and often with wild sticking out hair ( well feathers ) on their heads.
    Ok I need to get a life now, sorry folks.

    I borrowed DD's small towel animals that we got off the cruise many moons ago and used them in an attempt to make my 3 new baby finches seem cuter!


    FAIL!!!! They still have only a face, body, legs, and beaks a mother could love!
