Of course he died in my hands...so he never came back...I guess she is waiting to see him reappear where he dissapeared...she also goes back and forth peering out of the cage to see if he's on the other side

I think she would be in danger of dying herself...if not for the fact that Lil Finch is in the cage and so she isnt completely on her own. Lil Finch is oblivious...she's too young to notice the absence of her Father...being a Female she doesnt need him in her development now because she cant sing, so she hasnt got to learn that from Pettis. As far as Dane is concerned his Father is out of his mind...has been since he moved in with his Uncle in the other cage...I dont think Levon even remembers who Pettis was, they spent nearly a year together...but after that they've been in separate cages for months

Because Bonnie wont now mate with another finch...and as she is female, I cant keep her in with the boys...I shall have to send her to market along with her daughter in about a month or so...that will be quite hard...but I wont have Bonnie alone...I think that probably would kill her right now. She needs a new start along way away from anything Pettis related

Then, of course I shall have a spare cage and be able to buy a completely different veriety of bird

Sorry bro, that always sucks.

It's crazy how birds are, they can die of a broken heart just like ol' Johnny Cash did...

it did. After work on Saturday I walked all the way to scotton mill in the nid gorge and then I threw Pettis over the edge and watched him bob off down stream, swept by the current...until his lil red beak became just one discoloured dot amoung thousands of discoloured dot that make up the ever growing flotsam on the river towards Knaresborough

Thank you everyone for your condolences, it hasnt been the best passiontide for me this year

Dave, I'm really sorry for not having stopped in here yet, but I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. I know how much you love your birds.

Wow Tyburn sounds so depressing.. On a side note I don't think you should just get rid of Bonnie now that she's no use to you .. Just my thoughts though..
