Bird of the Day – Igor the Parakeet

BOTD: AUGUST 29,2019

***

Not a great photo, but wanted to put this on here anyway. I’d been looking for days for this photo and finally found it. 🙂

This was taken long ago, and is a picture of my little parakeet, named Igor. He was green and yellow.

We let him fly around all the time in the house. This photo is of him standing on one of our wine bottles that had candle wax of all colors melted down the side.

Igor was fun. We had him for quite a few years, and he could say his name, and also could say ‘Pretty Bird’.

We got him as a baby from a lady we knew who raised parakeets. She had lots of them. We’d gotten other ones from her, too.

Whenever we’d go on road trips, Igor would come along in his cage. He was a good traveler. 🙂

PARAKEET STORY blue-parakeet-204698__180 budgerigars-331834__180

A week ago I posted about a dream I had about a parakeet. http://wp.me/s3RE1e-parakeet

I couldn’t remember what happened in the dream, so I asked for suggestions. I did get two wonderful ideas from these lovely friends… Thanks so much! Hope you enjoy the poem/story! 🙂

Emily –  her suggestion = the zombie apocalypse

Kelly –   her suggestion = clipping wings of birds

OF BIRDS AND HEROES

Bobby Blue, the parakeet,

Was very loud, but could not tweet.

Escaped he did, from gilded cage;

He seemed to be in an awful rage.

He flew around with a terrible squawk,

And I was shocked, when he began to talk.

He told me not to clip his wings,

As he’d heard tell of terrible things.

He wanted us to leave our home,

For Zombies were about to roam.

It was the Zombie Apocalypse…

They’d take big bites, instead of nips.

We had to run and fly away;

No more fun and no more play.

We’d find a place to stay hidden,

For Zombies are scary and forbidden.

Bobby Blue and I, that day,

Packed our bags and went away.

Even though Bobby, the parakeet,

Only squawked, and could not tweet,

He saved us from the Apocalypse,

And also avoided wings with clips.

PARAKEET?

Standard

I was having a horrible dream about a parakeet. blue-parakeet-204698__180 budgerigars-331834__180

Now, I can’t remember what it was about, except I was trying to put him back in his cage.

What else happened?

Write a few words in the comments, and I’ll try to work it into a little story! 🙂
