is special because he is one of the very few tame finches I know
of out there. I handfed him from seven days old. He loves me and is out of
his cage and on my shoulder whenever I am home. He loves taking baths
in his water bowl but only if I take a bath with him (I stick my finger
in the bowl). He had just taken a bath in the picture. He also enjoys
tormenting my dog by hissing at her and pecking her in the nose and then
flying really fast back to my head. He enjoys falling asleep in my hand
or the crook of my arm and will tug at my hair. He sings his special
Zebra finch song for me every day which is meant for attracting mates.
I guess he believes I am his mate. He loves attacking the t.v.
controller buttons. He especially loves the red light that
flashes whenever the channel changes. He is so used to people that he
flies to the t.v. and attempts to land on the shoulders of the people on
t.v. He enjoys pecking at my dad's beard and my freckles. Beeper is a
very special part of my family's life.
