Roswell and Basil: A fine bromance..

Ever since Roswells best friend Jerry passed away, more than two years ago, he was in a state of depression.

But over the last few months he has got closer and closer to Basil.

Before this happened, he had lost weight due to depression, he was also sleeping a lot. I had started locking him in the cage in the morning with some millet to get his weight back up.

But now him and Basil are close friends, they feed each-other, preen each-other and Roswell is back up to his fighting weight.

Here they are, Roswell is the Normal Grey, Basil is the greywing (the lighter bird)

I couldn’t be happier for Roswell, all he ever wanted was a bird to take care of him 🙂

    I’m so glad Roswell is back to his old happy self. It must have been so hard to see him sad for so long like that. These little birds can be so sensitive. You wonder how they manage out in the big wild world.

    Very very pleased for Roswell! It’s sad to not have that companionship you crave….thrilled that Basil has stepped in to enjoy life with him!
