Mad Bird Lovers

There are many different hobbies in the world. One collects pictures, other can't see antiques without tears. You will remember that my husband is a birds lover. This year he had many species of birds: Virginia Quails (we still have 2 or 3 of them), Rock Partridges (father, mother and about 15 children probably will go away this week), Red-legged Partridges, Quails (15 males wait for their new destination), Grey Partridges, all they passed months of this year in our hen house. Today, except those I just mentioned here, we have different nanous hens and pheasants.


From time to time, I had ..."strange" thoughts about my husband. I was glad he has a hobby but I think, the birds have to enjoy great spaces, and I do not like these games with alive beings. You will remember the pond I helped him to create for his mandarin ducks (we have 2 couples and one white Carolina today). If I will show you the photo, you will laugh all the evening. It looked like this:


My husband needed other species of birds and had to sell those he had too many copies, so, he knows all the other bird lovers of the region and at least half of them in all the Italy. From time to time, we go to exchange birds, to buy them etc etc. Looking at those "zoos" I thought: poor wives... Here are some photos.
I do not know the names of most of these birds. Many of them have not price, as said one of the owners (like that azure-blue bird I do not know the name but I like it soooo much...), because they are unique in Italy and maybe in Europe.

So, here are two collections:



 


And this is the second one
