Spoke too soon- My baby finch is FLYING!

Spoke too soon- My baby finch is FLYING!

Yesterday I posted about Raising baby finches – week 2 updates. I looked back in my blog post history to see when the first baby hatched. It was December 4th. Before looking back to see just how old the babies were I was gray-finch.JPGsure the were preparing to try flying. After reading the available info my idea was crushed because 2 week and 4 day old birds don’t try to fly!

I called my mom and told her that I wouldn’t be able to give a live finch as a gift but that I would still give the finch, it just wouldn’t be ready to leave the parents for several more weeks.

This morning N woke me up, I was sleeping in because I took nighttime cold medicine. He informed me that our “gray” baby finch had left the nest and was flying around and that I might like to come see it!

What a pretty finch! The beak and head are grayish/ silver and the body is white. We are so excited that the finch is flying and “spreading it’s wings”, now we have two more to go… Watching these little guys develop and grow has been such a cool experience!

    Talina, your flyer is beautiful – I love the color! I hope that you, N, and Dixie have the greatest holiday. I think that it is so cool that you are able to let the rudeness of the holidays slide off of your back. I, too, hate that part of the season. April
