† April 2007 – 16 December 2016
She was the closest to a daughter that I shall have in this lifetime, and indeed I proudly state that she was undeniably a daughter of mine. She liked to stay up at night and sleep late. She was into everything. She dabbled in mischief but always stayed safe. She was a trooper who commanded the royal treatment of a princess. I learned so much about Bulbuls and enjoyed an intimate and privileged peek at avian life with her. I also learned to be my own person from that little feathered person. Her lifespan shall exceed her wingspan for all who knew her; she’ll forever have nest in my heart.
