    •  i do believe it. (7+ / 0-)

      when i lived in nyc, i saw the neighbors trying to catch a flyaway budgie - the little bugger flew up to the 11th floor of the building next door and lighted on the sill, exhausted.  i had the doorman call and ask the woman who lived there if i could come up and try to rescue the little budgie.

      when i got to her floor, she was standing with the door open going "OW! OW! OW!!!" - she'd opened the window and simply picked him up - to wit, he started chomping her finger!  she wouldn't let go, though - so i took him and took the subway to china town (it was very late, but i knew the shops would be open) where i bought him a cricket cage and larger bamboo 4 story birdhouse.

      named him "sweeney bird, the demon budgie with fleet feet" -after my favorite musical, sweeney todd, the demon barber from fleet street.

      eventually, he was joined by the entire cast - beedle bambird, toby, etc.  - my bedroom was home to 12 budgies all flying free because they kept eating their way out of the bamboo cage.

      loved it!

      Is GlowNZ back yet?
