Well, after four months I don’t think Milo has much interest in Maya. Unfortunate but I guess just like with humans not every couple will like each other. But Maya keeps dishing out eggs and then spending relentless hours caring for them. Only to get nothing in the end. We started to feel sorry for her now. So, back to the pet store we went and returned with young male who looks a lot like Maya. Welcome Nobu (のぶ). On his first day with us he is already serenading us with a young song. But he’ll get better and stronger as he matures.
I didn’t notice until we got home that he doesn’t have a birth bracelet. Either the breeder missed him or perhaps it fell off and they didn’t notice soon enough. So, unfortunately we don’t know for sure how old he is. But I’d say 6 months to a year old.
We were very sad to learn about the passing of Deniz’ uncle, Vehap Dino, yesterday. Vehap is the older brother of Deniz’ father, Demir. Our condolences to the entire Dino family during this difficult time.

We got confirmation that Maya is a girl. She laid a couple of eggs yesterday. They’re not fertilized so they would only be good for a couple of very small omelettes. Unfortunately too they both broke on the bottom. Time for her to meet Milo.

After matching Zozo with a mate, we were now thinking of doing the same with his son, Milo. So, off to a canary seller we went and returned with a pretty female canary. We’ve named her Maya and hope she will like Milo. Welcome Maya!
I wasn't home today when the Snowbirds flew over Halton Hills but I just happened to be outside at work on a break when they flew over our building.
Deniz' last day in Dubai, she and her colleagues after work went to see the mega tower there – Burj al Khalifa – and the huge Dubai Mall which is estimated to be triple the size of West Edmonton Mall.
Here are some of her pics of Burj al Khalifa.
And from up on the 125th floor observation deck.
Deniz enjoyed dinner with her colleagues. Here's some pictures she took down by the water.
