"I had a budgie for almost 7 years. He was the most wonderful bird I have ever known. I had gotten him a mate, but she died within two years, and looking back, I probably never should have moved them in together, but I did not know he would get hostile towards her. In any case, my bird died last week and it's driving me nuts that maybe I did something wrong. I read on all sorts of websites about average ages, and 7 appears to be on the young side of life expectancy. I worry that he died of loneliness although I talked to him all the time, he did not have another bird to be with, and I've been working a lot. He didn't get as much flying time in recent months because he started running into things and I didn't want him to get hurt. The day he died, I found him on the bottom of the cage and I opened the door for him. He perked up and jumped on my shoulder cooed at me, kissed me on the cheek and then ran off to hide and die. Is 7 a nice long life for a bird? "
