Here are Monta and Mon lazing away the afternoon.
Mon has laid four eggs so far this month, one in the left nest and three in the right nest. However the egg from the left nest dropped and broke, and Monta got jealous and started occupying the right nest.
I put a fake egg in the left nest to keep Monta occupied, and he seems satisfied with that.
I guess I’m smarter than a Java sparrow.
Here are Mon and Monta hanging out. Just relaxing in the evening.

I don’t want to jinx him, but Jumbo is still doing fine. I got him a year ago September, and he was supposed to have a lifetime of just one year. But he still (happily?) is swimming around his little enclosed biosphere.
I’m sitting here working in the dining room, next to Mon and Monta, while the electrician is replacing the old heater in my office room. He said it would take three hours or so.
He gave me a bag of Aomori apples and apologized for the inconvenience.
