Aw :) How nice to see them in the wild!! Are they native to your region?

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

You wouldn't seriously consider taking one from the wild... would you?!?

I don't see any reason to do that.. Fish I can understand.. But there are enough captive parakeets that we really shouldn't remove more from the wild..

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

In the city there's only pigeons and European Starlings!! Robins and Blue Jays are closer to the parameters of the forests. And we have A LOT of sea birds (like turns, gulls, puffins, etc) so they have nests out on cliffs and islands. There is a bald eagle family down on one of the lakes in town. And black ravens (or crows) keep them in town sometimes. You woldn't find "pet trade" birds around here!
