Default BOTM January 2017 "This year I'm gonna..."

Hi, EveryBudgie!

Welcome to our very first BOTM Challenge of 2017.

Please be sure your human very carefully reads the Budgie of the Month Rules and Regulations before submitting an entry.
BOTM Rules and Regulations

Now, let’s chirp about this month’s challenge.

You know how humans make New Year’s Resolutions?
Well, we all know that budgies are much better than humans at keeping our resolutions.

So…. this month’s challenge is

"This year I'm gonna..."
(aka Budgie Resolutions)


What you need to do first is decide what YOUR resolution for this year will be.

Maybe your resolution will be to eat more vegetables,
or maybe you want to get more exercise,
take more baths or spend more quality time with your friends.

Whatever YOUR resolution is, you need to have your human take a sharp, clear, in-focus picture of you demonstrating you practicing that behavior.
Then the human should submit a FULL-SIZE picture (No thumbnails will be accepted) in this thread.

Entries will be accepted until 7PM EST Friday, January 27th
Voting for the BEST picture will be announced in a separate thread when the time comes.

Put your thinking caps on budgies--pick a good resolution and stick to it!
And... make SURE your human enters your picture!

The challenge is now open for entries.

Good luck EveryBudgie!

Contestant #7 Oscarlynn

Hello.. Oscarlynn here! As the vet told my person, I've lost weight and look beautiful, soo... that's my goal this year. Keep looking beautiful (I always WAS quite lovely, of course!), and to eat right and be active. I do that by making sure my buddy Rigby does what I want him to do and by showing him my flying skills. He wasn't out of his cage in his old home, so he needs me to show him to to do stuff, like flying. Here's my photo shoot highlighting the beautiful girl my person says I am (she raised me, too!)

Contestant #8 Reggie

I live with 2 other boys, Buster & Oscar, but since Oscar moved in I have been a bit mean to Buster - shooing him off and not letting him always play with us. I have gotten much much better now the excitement of a new friend has died down, however this year I still intend to make a bigger and better effort to be friendly with my buddy Buster. Here I am offering him a hug



Loving all the posts, they really made me chuckle!
