So, for those who missed:

My dad and i shared a hobby, we build ourselves an aviary in his backyard with canary’s, siskins (my favorites) and bullfinches (my dad’s favorites). Unfortunatly my dad died, leaving me in full Control of the aviary..

i have sold almost all the birds, save my favorite siskins and the bullfinches my dad so loved. And lo and behold.. they had a youngster! I am sorry my dad did not get to see this, so we named the youngster in his favorite nickname “Basje”.

the picture was taken a few days ago, and Basje has since made his first big strides into the big world :)

Awwwww! Such a cutie, congratulations!

My road is named after Bullfinches! I really like them but we don't get to see them often. I've been here nearly 14 years and we have seen one or two.
