Meet Monsieur Le Plume!



New resident at the shop. His roommate, Wolfgang, is a little camera shy, but not Monsieur Le Plume! He found his way out of the 3-story cage to have his picture taken! He took a special liking to our mercury glass swallows. With 14 foot ceilings I soon gave up trying to catch him. My aunt always told me the way to a man's heart is through his stomach...well, it works for zebra finches too, thankfully. With a stem of fresh millet in his home and the door wide open (with Wolfgang safely partitioned off from the ground floor of the cage) Monsieur Le Plume found his treat while I silently shut and locked the door behind him ;-). Stop by and see them soon.

Oh he is so sweet! I've been thinking about getting some finches and this just makes me want to even more! I received my magazine yesterday and you wrap it up so nicely and I love the little key too! Thanks so much. Kim
