Monta – then and now

Sue was asking about the color of Monta’s beak. With Java Sparrows, a sign of heart health is the red rings around their eyes and the redness in their beaks.

Monta is getting quite old, so it’s always something I’m on the lookout for.

Here is a photo from six years ago, when Monta first came to live here, and a photo from last night. I think the redness in his eyes and beak basically look the same, so even though he has problems, I think his heart is still in the right place.
