    For many years as a kid, we had "budgies" or as they were more often called here, "parakeets". Wonderful cheerful social little pets.

    I now have a tropical parakeet (species??) but it's a bit quieter:

    Okay, a little strange. Taxidermy was a Victorian hobby (especially for women!). All sorts of birds ended up under glass domes, including the family pet. Also, one might other family pets including dogs! They were also done by professional taxidermists as well. I suspect that was the instance here. Amazing artificial rocks, dried plants, painted background, etc. What makes this unusual is that rather than being under a dome, it was instead placed in a silver leafed vitrine to be hung on a wall. By the way, I call him Harry after my last parakeet/budgie, "Pretty Harry".

    I was hoping for some movement at the station since perhaps the colt from old regret may have gotten away.
    Still, as it is. It was worth parroting on about
