Louis was a great budgie. He learned how to get out of his cage, and ate the corners of the books I left on the table. He loved sunshine, and loved to be with me and eat scrambled eggs. He was even a quiet bird (since we lived in a small apartment at the time and probably weren't supposed to have him), but if he got chirpy, I covered his cage and he fell silent.
When we moved to a house, I bought him a companion so he wouldn't get lonely when I was working. They both learned to get out of the cage, and sit on top where they could look out the window. They were very easy to care for, and when I was pregnant and had to rest a lot, they kept me company with their sing-song. I miss them a great deal, and would love to get another one.
