Today I received a test shipment of some goodies from the Cozy Nestbox.
It really stemmed from my desire to try the Poinciana seed pods after seeing many posts made about them on one of the bird forums I am on, by the owner of the Cozy Nestbox, Kelly. So Kelly offered to do a trial run and I got a few other items.
Some arrived here in great condition, some were not so great. Most of what was in my test package was ok for bird consumption though.
So far, the Poinciana seed pods (although they had started going brown (drying out) as we suspected they might) and the Christmas palm nuts are a big hit. I'll share a few pictures I have of the birds with the latter, I'll probably have the pictures with the Poinciana seed pods up tomorrow or sometime this week-end. Joey, Shade and Pixel were definitively the most enthusiastic about the products, Zuri chimed it when he saw Joey chewing on a seed pod and the prospect of stealing it away was too hard to resist ;) No luck so far with Piper or Petey.
Again, this was a test shipment to Canada. Kelly is still trying to figure out some things before making them widely available to Canadians.
So..here are some pictures :)
I started by giving them half a Christmas palm nut..
And then Joey decided he'd go towards the container I kept them in and stole a whole one and enjoyed on one of the stands..
