||Three years old|
||Haverhill, Massachusetts, USA|
recently had six babies and she is a wonderful mother. She lives in a
large aviary inside my home. She doesn't like to be held like so many
larger birds. But she, along with her husband and a few friends, fill
the house with their song and beauty. I just love these little guys,
they are so beautiful.
She is very easy to care for actually, every day I change the paper in
the cage and give fresh water bottles. Her birdseed is in a large dish
that only needs filling about every four days. Her favorite food is
definitely Millet Sprays, they are "branches" that are covered in
millet. I hang them from the top of the Aviary and they all fly up to
them and hang on while they munch away :) She is actually the daughter
of my first pair of gouldian finches that I received as a Valentine's
Day gift from my husband, so she is even more special to me.
If you have ever seen a ViewSonic brand computer monitor and noticed the
three pretty little birds on the corner... those are gouldian finches... that
is where I first saw them! I just had to have one... two... Seven! Being
a finch she is not very tame, so I can not play with her like you could
with a parrot, but she entertains with her beauty and song, and we love
her just the way she is.
