Making A Comeback.

Recommended Posts

Based in the Scottish Borders, nearing retirement so hopefully more time for birds. Used to keep quite a few softbills way back in the 70's and 80's but at present only have a few seedeaters. Bred Red Siskins and Rufous-backed Mannikins this year and am just about to take obtain a pair of Red and Yellow Barbets as a first step back into softbills, allan

Welcome to Feathered flyer Allan. As Dave said there's not many Rufous-backed Mannikins around at the moment. Well done on breeding them. Hope you enjoy the site. Have upgraded you to a full member so please feel free to enjoy an active part on feathered flyer. Jan

Hi AJR, believe I meet you a few times at the now defunct Scottish National CBS if I remember correctly you were looking for a hen Black-headed Green Sugarbird hen to go with the male you had, unfortunately I could not help as I only had the one pair at the time. Best of luck with the Barbets, the more softbills the better. Regards James..
