New babies of the season

I'm a little behind on pictures, but do have some new babies coming out of the nest.  A few gouldian pairs finally got in the mood and are raising broods.  The seagreen parrot finches have 3 new babies that needs close banding soon.  The scarlet chests have a few new babies in the nest as well.  The bourkes and turquosines have decided to molt instead.  Hopefully the forbes pair and purple grenadiers will have some fertile eggs soon.  The shaft tails seem enthusiastic, but eggs are not fertile.  Societies are raising babies too, but with some sporadic results so far.

Unfortunately, when the seasons change, there is a higher chance for birds to get sick and die.  I do have some tenants in the hospital cage and have lost a few birds sadly.  The higher mutations due tend to be more susceptible despite all the precautions.
I do have some new softbills, on the plus side.  A pair of spotted tanager and a pair of red legged honey creeper.  Pictures to come, but very enjoyable to have them.  For such small birds, they sure eat a lot of fruit.
