Semola & Anacleto


Welcome to the blog of the lives and adventures of Semola and Anacleto, two rascal budgies of one year old and nine months.
We like to test the patience of our humans.

Smaller birds have the tendency to be interpreted as an animal that does not need as much mental stimulation.  People seem to figure, smaller brains means they won’t develop the same problems as their larger avian relatives.
Smaller birds, just like any birds, need to have a great variety of colours, textures, and tastes to keep their minds active.  Toys should be switched around on a regular basis and old toys should be removed once they become a hazard.
Without a constant changing environment birds can become stressed, scared, and aggressive.  All of these things lead to an unhappy bird which can develop nervous ticks and plucking issues no matter how big or small your bird is.

They are so cute, I want to smooch ‘em. But I think it would result in an eye loss or nose loss…
But look at their bellies!!

Back (sort of…)!!

Exams are over, and I have a few weeks of vacation, so I’ll be back updating Semola and Anacleto’s blog!
Today they had their first spray bath -the weather is getting hotter day by day, so they needed it-, and it went surprisingly good!
I thought they would’ve freak out by the new experience, but they enjoyed the spray bath right from the start!
Proud of my baby birbs :)

Someone should make an appliance store that caters specifically to bird keepers’ needs.

Things like:

  • fans that feet can’t get to the blades
  • air conditioners that don’t release harmful fumes
  • water dispensers that are safe for birds
  • pots and pans without teflon
  • self cleaning ovens that don’t kill our birds
  • vacuums made for sucking up seeds and feathers
  • quiet air filters that rid of bird dust effectively

"Hey ma, look how cute we are! …millet now?"

"Our human is busy with exams lately, so we have to take control of our blog…but it’s difficult to do so when you have little tippy-tap birby toes.
We want to say hello to our birb blogger friends! We’ll be back with our sassiness soon, but in the meanwhile here’s a shameless reblog.”

Be a bird

You must be soft as a fluffy ‘tiel

With all the cuddliness of a ‘too

With all the squawk of a big macaw

Curious as the smallest budgerigar

forget how to train your dragon, try training a parakeet. damnit. so hard.

That’s his new favourite toy. Made to drive the human insane by having to pick it from the floor every single time.
…but the human would do everything to make the fluffballs happy.
