I am not sure if a petstore would let me take pictures of their birds,
but Maybe I can sneek my digittal camera in there? I use to post pics a
lot, but people I guess didn't want to see my name all over the

But I agree, I will have dats and the such. Luckily the finch didn't
die. I thought he may of. He didn't eat for a good few hours from
thursday I got him to friday night.... But he is eating quite a lot
