bastard

Hmm...

A lot of problems could be solved if you were allowed to take the offender and shove a JATO up their clacker.

The previous comment was brought to you by the bloke who handed me a young black bird in a box. "I think it's still alive," he said, and gave the box a vigorous shake. "Yep! I can hear it flapping.."

I ended up with a blackbird chick in a condition that could be called "not terribly alive." I had to make it totally not alive..

Peewee

This morning I rescued a young pee wee. Everyone else in the group are swamped by chicks: parrots, magpies, friar birds, owls and kingfishers. So guess who's peewee mum for the next 3 weeks? The good thing about peewees is they beg for food and swallow anything you shove in there. All you need to do is bump the box and you see a big yellow mouth. You also only have to make a noise, breath heavily or even just think in the bird's general direction. The really cool thing about peewees is how clean they are. The chick struggles backward until his bum is clear of the container, then he poops over the side.

I have a special mix of artificial insects for him. It has a lot less fat than Rexie's artificial termites.

Recipe and other photos soon.
