Look momma, another edition of Cage and Aviary Birds!

...but sadly not a lot new in it this week for trade-aware birdspotters.

Of interest...
For Sale, Baikal Teal, drakes, £30 each. Now THAT is cheap. Also Azure-winged Magpies, £375 pr. THAT is expensive, but perhaps worth it. And 'Rainbow' (Painted?) Bunting cock, 'very fit but missing nape feathers', £70.

Things that made me chuckle...
'Wanted One Female Hawfinch for breeding purposes (Wales)'
I assume the ad was placed by a Punterfinch, or possibly a Pimpfinch.
Stay with me, I did say it was a slow week.

Why don't you see penguins in Britain? Because they're afraid of Wales.

That joke doesn't work on so many levels, but it was on page 11, right next to an even worse one..
Why do penguins carry fish in their beaks? Because they haven't got any pockets.
That last one is true, not funny.
