Our New Little Friends

Last week for my parent's 22nd wedding anniversary Daddy let Mom get these Zebra Finches. Their names are Twister and Queenie. They are pretty little birds that make a very sweet chirping noise whenever it is light outside. Sorry, the pictures aren't great, they don't stay still for more than 2 seconds!

We named the birds after the characters Twister and Queenie from the BBC series Lark Rise to Candleford. We have been watching it recently and have enjoyed it enough to name the birds after these two. :) Twister and Queenie are an older couple, Twister is slightly "queer in the attic" and Queenie is like a grandmother to the village of Lark Rise.

They live in the schoolroom right now, keeping mom and Charlotte company during school.
