It’s been one year since Charlie died.
This blog is dedicated to helping improve the lives of ‘insignificant’ birds like him (and I know I haven’t been blogging lately; for that I apologise). You see, our Charlie was a very special canary. He was cheeky, clever, and friendly in his own independent way. No, he was not tame, and no, that did not matter. Thanks to him, I know now that canaries deserve far more than most websites and other sources allude to.
They deserve big cages.
They deserve good, fresh food, and shiny new toys.
They deserve your love and companionship, even when most people will assure you that they are solitary birds.
That may be common sense, true, but I don’t see it happening often enough. We know to give parrots these things, so why not our finches too?
We still miss Charlie bird every day. And I am missing the rest of my flock also – unfortunately there are no updates in that department. The other birds will still be joining me when they can, but that could yet be awhile.
In the meantime, here’s to Charlie! (The best canary ever… Except for Pip, of course.)
