Cerulean Warbler Northern Parula Hybrid by HaleyGottardo

I had a surprise today. I saw my first confirmed hybrid warbler!!!! This hybrid is know for this location at Fabyan Forest Preserve in Batavia, IL, but I didn't know that. 

I thought it was just a parula, but there was no yellow, and it didn't sound exactly the same. It actually sounded more like the cerulean recordings I heard. Someone else saw it last year: www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQuEv8…

Near the Fabyan Villa vine covered walkway, the tree line.I thought it was just a parula, but there was no yellow, and it didn't sound exactly the same. It actually sounded more like the cerulean recordings I heard. Someone else saw it last year: www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQuEv8…

Caspian Flirting with Sammy by HaleyGottardo

This month 2 of my budgies died, Caspian and Sammy. I am not quite sure how they died, but I thing Caspian might have had testicular cancer due to his cere changing from dark blue to brown. He died on May 17th. Today is May 27th and Memorial Day and just a few hours ago my bird Sammy died. I am bawling my eyes out right now writing this. I can't believed it. Last year a week before my vacation she broke her wing and acting similarly for about a week but then got better. Her body was fluffed,  P lethargic, didn't chirp or make any sounds. At the end of the week we are going to Florida for vacation and within a month the amount of bird I have has been cut in half. I really hope there isn't any contagion running through our house. I have two other bird who seem perfectly healthy right now, but if this a fast killing virus I don't know what to do. There are no avian vets. I tried apple cider vinegar of Sammy and I though she was improving, but it didn't work. She always twitched, but maybe those twitches yesterday were seizures. She wasn't egg bound, there were no bulges of tumors. I don't know if she was bit by an insect, or ate something bad. I am really really freaked out and worried about Stormy and Perry now, who never have been ill before. I just cleaned cages yesterday and Sammy only started showing signs of illness yesterday. I wonder if she got lead poisoning, or chewed on something with bacteria.
