Minnie feeding the little guys 5-17-2009

Minnie and her flock.  The little guys were ready to eat so while mom was feeding them Micky kept watch for any unwanted issues.  Micky is the bird standing on top of the nesting box.  The last egg you can see at the left side of the Nemo was discarded.  It ran its course and never hatched.  Now that there is no more eggs left in the nest Minnie and Micky will begin the process all over again until we have more eggs ie. more little guys!


  1. That's a great picture of the little babies. It looks like their eyes aren't open yet.

  2. aww sweet babies. How fun to watch.

  3. They sure are tiny babies! Mickey is doing a great guard job!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  4. Oh they are so small! We are very impressed with Mickey too! Great picture.

  5. My mom had grey cockatiels that looked so much like yours - "Nutmeg" (girl), "Bean" (male) and "Little Reggie the Cockatiel" (male). Mom got Nutmeg as a Christmas present when she was 10 years old, and had that wee birdy all the way through high school, college and her first job. Nutmeg even moved to London with her for 2 years!

    Bean would whistle Low Rider every morning. Mom misses them!

    What cute babies!

  6. Maggie and Mitch sent us over to say hey and to see your cute baby birdies, we can't wait to watch them grow up!
