This is my new baby, Sunny!!! A yellow canary! Isn't he/she/it sweet? I don't know the sex yet, but I think it may be a male, since it chirps and chatters a lot. I hope it is, because male canaries sing and have the prettiest voices. From here on out, I will just refer to Sunny as a male.
My Bible study leader has 2 canaries and they had 4 babies on March 6th. I had always loved Nancy's birds and when she offered me one of the babies, I was thrilled. Growing up I never had a bird, so I was not sure how it would be taking care of a bird, but I have loved it!
Sunny's cage sits on a bookcase between my computer desk and a window and I enjoy watching Sunny when I am in my office on the computer. Sunny recognizes me when I come in and comes to sit on his perch in the corner of the cage closest to the computer. Sunny will look at me and cock his head and chatter at me. It is so cute!! I can talk to Sunny and he will listen just like he knows what I am saying.
I have had Sunny for a week, but have grown attached to him already. It is very easy to take care of for all the joy that I have gotten from having him. Sunny loves to take a bath, so several times a week, I put a dish of water in the cage and Sunny has the best time bathing. It is so much fun to watch Sunny having a good time in the water!
Since my girls are out of the nest, I now have my little animals to keep me company. We have our chihuahua named Holly, our cat named Sassy and our little canary named Sunny!! Life is good!
