When tranny birds attack.

I came home today to find one of my birds injured on the bottom of the cage. It's probably the most beautiful bird that I have. Because it's the male of it's kind, every few months it grows a very, very long tail and becomes even more beautiful. About 2 weeks ago it started growing it's tail again and now it was at it's peak of beauty.

As I was watching, it's mate swooped down, she rammed right into him, and then flew back up. It kept doing that. Obviously, this is why the poor bird was injured. My eyes followed the attacking bird. What the fuck! The female mate had a long beautiful tail. Damn! I guess it isn't a female.

So I guess that's the problem. The two males are in some kind of domination war and the tranny one is winning. They have gotten along together for over 6 months until now. But I guess the former female bird is now feeling all proud and beautiful.

What to do? I would like to cut the mean one's long tail feathers off and make him look ordinary again. See how he handles that. But of course I would never do that. I ended up moving the injured bird to the smaller cage with my other canary. Poor thing. I hope it gets better and that I can put him back with the other finches.

My Easter kinda sucked. I'm still pretty messed up over the recent heartache and it sucked to spend another holiday alone. I did the best I could though. I took myself on a date to see "How to Train Your Dragon" in 3D where I had an Easter day dinner of peperoni pizza, a HUGE bag of very heavily buttered popcorn, and a giant Diet Coke. The movie was AWESOME!!! Later that night I watched "Where the Wild Things Are" (HATED IT! Put that little fucker on Ridalin and call it a day.) and ate MSG free take-out Chinese food. I was half way through when I got a call from a woman saying she had found my wallet in the parking lot of the Chinese restaurant. I didn't even know it was missing! Nice. I'm not really doing that well right now. Still trying to find center. I'm hoping that my trip to San Francisco on Friday will give me the distance from this recent problem that I need to put it in it's place.

I hope both you and the little finch are going to be ok.

Glad you got your wallet back. What a pain a lost wallet can be.

Keep your chin up!
HUGS!

I hope your trip helps!!

Nice that she called you on your wallet. It's better that you didn't know, this way you had no time to panic. :)

Your center is still there within you Nick. It just retreated deeper. But being caged with one who is battering you, now that is serious business! Poor birdie!

I hope your trip helps you out; I think you are destined to be happy. Don't ask me how I know. I just feel it for you.

Hope your trip out west helps you out Nick. A change of scenery is always good.
I hope the bird recovers too. The woman calling about your wallet shows that maybe your luck is changing i hope.
Big Hugs,
Stan
