He Was A Good Bird
Niko, who joined our family in mid-November 2007 and spent countless hours playing with Reyna, passed away this afternoon. He'd been acting a bit odd the last couple of days, sitting on the bottom of the cage and looking less alert than usual. This afternoon, he was perched on his food bowl and then dropped down to the bottom of the cage. I heard him wheeze out three chirps, almost like he was deflating, and then he was gone. He's now resting peacefully in the flower bed under the tree in the back yard. I know that Reyna, in particular, will miss him. He was a good bird.
