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.
