i had bought a nice couple of young Bull Finches, only to have the female die on me this morning!

My red Siskins had a nest with 3 youngsters, only to vanish overnight and never be found again!

I swear.. my aviary is haunted :(

Bad male. Hope a few survive because they are such tiny cuties.

What?? Oh that's terrible! I'm sorry!

When I lost babies from the nest, I thought it could be mice but finally found a snake in the cage. Then another snake. They never bothered the parents, just ate all the babies.

Luckily we don’t have baby eating snakes here, not in the city anyway *shudder* :)

I read that sometimes giving them too much insects can make them “horny” again, so to speak.
So balance seems really important haha

What got me so upset is the fact that they have a hard time in the wild, these beautyful red, amazing looking friendly little birds... and look what we do :( Somehow i was very excited about breeding them, sort of like “doing my part” in saving them, if you know what i mean
