Baby bird updates...

Almost all of the gouldians are molting, some for the second time of the year.  Not sure what is going on, but their breeding season is pausing currently.  Some of the gouldian babies born so far are molting into adult colors already.

RH PB GB hen - great grand-daughter of one of my favorite gouldians, a BH PB/WB SFYB/BB male with a redline, who has since passed away

 While the gouldians are acting out of character, unexpected species are breeding.
 The canary baby has grown up a lot - it is red factor but has some mild variegation on the head.  In addition to the unexpected canary baby, a pair of sea green red faced parrot finches are brooding 3 fertile eggs.  The white java pair also laid 3 eggs, though not sitting as of yet.

Slow going but babies are growing

I have greatly enjoyed going to some bird fairs recently with some "bird friends", and learned a lot as well from the judges of the bird shows.  The breeding season is coming along slowly, but I am having some exciting babies.
