Well it's apricot season and I was enjoying some of the local ones when I noticed that the 'tiels were watching me very intently. Sure enough, they love them. Apricots are supposed to be very beneficial for people so I'm wondering if they are for birds too.





And butternut squash and corn is being served on the balcony!

Thanks. No yellow cheek tiels here, if it's Prospero that you're referring to, I believe he has fatty liver disease and it's causing his colours to fade, but he's a normal grey. He was also going through a molt which is making his feathers look thinner than normal. I'm actually very pleased that he's showing an interest in eating something other that birdseed, I'm actually starting to see an improvement in his appearance and energy levels.

They certainly will be waiting for next season, even though they really aren't on here yet, it will be another month or so if they manage to produce fruit at all with the weird weather we've been getting. These ones are shipped in from the US, but the 'tiels don't care. I let them out in the the kitchen this morning before going to work, and they made a bee line for the basket containing the apricots and now a couple of them have, let us say, cockapoxvirus. :p
