Thanks to Mietjie for including me in her treasury.

It is so encouraging to see so many South Africans on etsy.

Zebra Finch

A 'doodle ' of feathers.

This Zebra Finch flew into our house and perched on a mirror frame. With a lot of flapping,running around and trying to distract the cat, we finally caught him and put him in the only available (hamster)cage. After a few days we felt sorry for him so went to the pet shop and bought him a mate. Apparently they do breed in cages so we bought a bigger cage and are waiting patiently! I do love the markings , especially the spots on the wings and the zebra stripes on the tail.
