    Tetola updates

    So Tetola has been slowly but surely growing more confident outside her cage. She had her first bath yesterday (first video) and today she flew towards us for the first time. We are so smitten with her, we've decided she's definitely a Parakute.



    On my shoulder for the first time.

    To those who are losing heart because it's taking too long to bond with their feathered mischief: Tetola began her journey with us in the worst way possible; we saved her after she got hit by a car. It took us 9 months just to get her to perch on a finger inside the cage, and a whole year for her to want to venture out. We still can't really touch her (a random scritchy here and there) and her trust in us still isn't 100%, but hopefully we'll get there. The point I'm trying to make is, don't give up! Keep trying to find something the bird likes or is keen on doing. Not all birds are foodies. Tetola likes millet but more than anything she wants to chew through soft wood. He who holds the wood chip holds the power!
    I hope these videos inspire you to give your feathered puff a chance to figure out they can and want to be your friend.
    Best.

    Awww!!! What a heart wrenching happening. I admire you for saving her. She is a miracle, to think she survived an automobile hit. That is terrible that happened.

    It sounds like she is one special and happy, loving little budgie. Because of my security set, I cannot access your photos or video. But I know they are precious.

    Thanks for sharing this story with us.
