A Bird Named Jean-Claude

Look who came to live at our house!!!!!!
His name is Jean-Claude, he's an American Song Canary and he takes baths in his own bathtub, loves to eat lettuces, grapes and poppy seeds (we have a lot in common) and he sings for a half an hour straight every morning when the sun comes up.

I am completely smitten. He is incredibly sweet and amazingly delicate, from his tiny little pink feet to his bright black eyes.We are still slowly getting acquainted but eventually he should be able to learn to feel safe perching on my finger and will learn to return to his perch reliably enough to he can be let out to fly around the house for select periods. I am astonished how much birdsong and that cheery yellow makes it seem totally possible to survive until spring.


  1. Question, Carlie. Is it okay to have Jean-Claude so close to the window when it is so cold. I know chill flows from the glass. Just wondering, as I know nothing about caring for birds. xoxo

  2. What a cheerful new addition to the family! Happy serenading.
