A Four-Foot Addition

We've recently added four feet to our home. 
It’s not a dog (although the youngest is lobbying hard for another one and she’d prefer one that did not eat the Pug), but two zebra finches!  Have you ever heard these birds?  They're so damn chirpy in the cutest way possible.
Say hello to our newest feathered friends, Darcy and Elizabeth.

Right now, Darcy is still in his quietly brooding phase; Elizabeth is quite garrulous.
Although my husband bought them for me for our anniversary, the twelve year-old named them.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a married woman in possession of a good man, must be in want of a bird.

Or two.

Happy Anniversary, and congratulations on the new additions!

Thanks. You'll have to come by and see them - they're very cute.

Also, they present a fabulous opportunity to discuss evolution and natural selection. What more could a literature-loving, science-seeking homeschooler want?
