    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
    place,lol. So I quit posting my pics.. But I never stop taking them :)
    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
    now :)
