I continue down the path of insanity. The cage arrived yesterday and today the perches and dishes arrived. Ellie thinks we are either getting a much bigger dog or she is being shipped off. She is very concerned.
So now I just need to get lights and heat. Then perhaps I will be prepared for the birds. Hopefully I will be able to find some Taeniopygia bichenovii, a few Lonchura oryzivora, and maybe even a Erythrura gouldiae or two.
No, I haven't abandoned the new book. It is now with the editor.
