Well I do love mysteries – on the TV at least.

This afternoon my dear Hubby was outside deciding not to mow the lawn. While he was busily making that decision he had left the front door ajar. I looked around for our newest Galah – who we have named Angel. Well – Angel was no where to be found. I knew from recent experience that when she is out the front grazing she will make a sudden rush for the road. So panic set in, as panic always with a bird owner missing a bird. I searched the house. We lifted up lounge chairs and even beds – no Angel anywhere.
I had a writing job to finish so I sent the Hubby out into the wild jungle – AKA up and down the streets – to search for her.
A little while later – after I finished my first writing job I got ready to go look for her too. I went on a phone search and remembered it was in my dressing gown from this morning. I went to get it out and see what I had left in there this time. There was a little pink and white galah – with her head still tucked under her wing sound asleep! How she got up onto the bed and tucked herself inside the dressing gown we will never know – but she was one comfortable little birdie!

A New Addition To The Flock

We have a new baby! Yes – a juvenile galah came to us today. It has a bruised and dropped wing. The parents were still trying to feed it but couldn’t keep it protected. It started of by screaming its lungs out at me and almost severing a few fingers (ok – A little exaggeration but I am sporting several band aids). Anyway – the bubba was towelled and cuddled for a few hours while I wrote. Than a few more hours on my arm and shoulder and now it is quite placid. What a beautiful little Bubba. Billie isn’t too put out either.

I guess she is used to our refugees now!

We haven’t named this one yet – I can’t imagine being able to release it as it will have to be strapped for about two weeks – but you never know. Right now it is sitting on my shoulder and grinding it’s beak – always a good sign!
