The latest video of Rinpoche http://youtu.be/dPB6SouHQmE
is very well done and is very touching. It shows how compassionate Rinpoche is.
But I hope the budgies and the cockatiels would not be released. To my knowledge these birds that are found at pet shops are home bred or farm bred.
They may not have the survival instinct of their wild cousins. Crows prey on these birds. I had experienced crows swarming over my parrot, Cocoa when I brought her out for morning walk. It happened many times. There were easily 50 of them circling us as we walked. And also there were a couple of times the crows chased after Cocoa during her outdoor flights.
The budgies and the cockatiels can live happily together in a big aviary. Hope they will not be released.
