It’s THE DAY!!! Finally, I get to bring my baby bird home and set him up once and for all. I was SO excited to spoil him and get to know him!!!
Maryse: Good morning! Its storming here so bad
Eric: Yes it woke me up
Maryse: Awwww I needed that. ❤️ 😊 It’s been a strange morning and his cute singing made me feel better. Best sound ever. So happy and sweet.
Maryse: I get to go and get him tonight. YAY!!!!
and then I went to pick him up (but of course enjoyed a nice supper and visit with my sweet man)…
But as it was time to leave, and collect Birdy and all his goods, I could feel a sense of melancholy coming over my boyfriend. I think he was getting attached, or… at least, enjoying Birdy’s joyful company over the last few days…
I was overjoyed over my wonderful birthday gift, but a bit sad to be taking him from Eric…
Maryse: I’m home!!!
Eric: Baby bird 🦅 is home 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Maryse: Yes he is!!! He sang-chirped a few times in the drive. Now to set him up 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Eric: Good I hope you enjoy him!
Maryse: He is investigating everything I put in there and using it all ☺️
Maryse: That’s his clear feeder and he’s already eating.
NOTE: Excuse the lighting in this next video. My “Hue” lights were in soft pink night-time relaxing color mode. 😉 And… I was playing classical music to welcome my new family member.
Maryse: Okay… he’s all set up. And he lets you know when he doesn’t like something. 😏 He’s fun!!! Sweet baby.
Eric: 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I figured you were setting everything up and getting him comfortable
Maryse: Oh yes I just covered him now. While he fits on those shelves perfectly they won’t do. It’s too dark when you put him in there, so I’ll get him a table. For now he’s on the kitchen island safe from dogs but plenty of light.
Eric: Yes he needs that good light.
Maryse: Yes! I love him!!! Some things I gave him he loves and took right to. Some things he was mad at. Hahahha. Took them out, and he was happy again!
Eric: How do you know he’s mad?
Maryse: He runs back and forth in front of it. But doesn’t go to it. Paces. I gave him a few minutes and I was all nope, he hates it. Then took some things out and he was happy again.
Eric: Ohh. That’s funny!
Maryse: It is. For example, his adorable set of blue and yellow food/water dishes that seemed PERFECT! I don’t know if it’s the colors, or the way it sits, or how bulky they are in his cage, but he lets you know. It’s a NO go.
Maryse: But his favorite thing is his clear feeder. I bought a few varieties of the same type of thing ’cause I wasn’t sure what would fit best, and his clear feeder is his canary diet feeder and it’s a winner! He’s been in it all evening.
Maryse: I kept his pellet diet dish as the normal one that he came with and has been using. He’s been going back and forth between the two.
Eric: 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I hope he makes you happy!!
Maryse: He does. He’s got a personality!! And I am so thankful you got him for me.
Maryse: Do you miss him?
Eric: A little but I’m good.
Maryse: I felt bad because I know you like him. I will take good care of your buddy, and… he’s ours. 😉
