Remember that Baby Bird ?


I know I said I was not going to post today ( it's Australia day tomorrow) and that I was taking a long weekend. But I had to post this photo. Do you remember that baby bird I saved last October? It was only a few days old when I found it. Well I have tried to release it 3 times and every time it keeps flying back to me. It wont go. So I decided to keep it a little longer. A lot longer? He/she seems to be fitting into the Beach Vintage lifestyle quite well don't you think? Oh whatever have I done....

  5. What have you done??? You have followed your heart and nurtured a beautiful little soul back to life and you are clearly its life. A new member of your family for as long as it wants. I am positive it will have a wonderful life with you!
    As for the cushions why don't you let me know what you would be willing to pay. You know, I am not very good at doing business with friends :)

  16. I also saved one of these from a cat once - they're pretty things. Btw, this isn't a crested pigeon. It's a spotted dove, which is an introduced species. The crested pigeon has similar shape/colouring but is an Australian native bird and has a little mohawk. Sorry to be a know it all and of course I would save any and all birds (except, perhaps for Indian Mynahs, which really are a pest)!

  17. Oh that's incredible! You are a bird wisperer! It reminds me of that story, "Are you my Mother?" about the little bird. Well done, I love your little friend, does it have a name? xo

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, I think it's nice for both you and the bird to have a good friend.

  22. How lovely... it's hard to keep a little bird alive when it was so small when you found it... It's obviously meant to be :) Such a cute photo!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ahhhh your mama bird now :)
    A wonderful ending :) or should I say beginning for Mr. Bird. You should name it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You should definitely name her/him! Poor little bird thinks you're it's mommy, and I guess you are!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It thinks you are its mother! Is it such a bad thing that it loves you? Can it fend for itself? As long as it can, then it shouldn't be too much of a problem right? Like a pet cat or something?! xxx

  26. Have you and your daughter read "Are You My Mother?"? What an appropriate book for you two to read.

    How fun for you and your family to have this "guest".

  30. Oh Simone, this made my day! What a sweet little bird. It's so funny that he's really made himself part of your family. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

  31. I resqued a baby (1" barely feathery) newborn three years ago. Her mother had made nesting material out of some plastic (oh pul-lease people, RECYCLE! Keep it out of nature!) string which had gotten wrapped around the leg, mother threw her out of the nest, sigh. The vet had to cut off the foot the plastic had grown into, right before she said "She'll be yours forever, are you willing?"

    I fed her every 5-20 min. the first 30 days, the feeding times graduated into loner increments of time, and my little one-footed bird began to talk to me. She began to learn how to squak to voice her displeasure, or when one of her two water dishes (one for bath, one to drink) was getting past an acceptable level of low. She has to have her own room due to my cats thinking either a) lunch, b) a new toy. Hence she has her own tv to avaoid sensory deprivation, in between times I go in her room to sew or do crafts every day.

    She will be four years old this coming July, is a joy to live with, and I will be "Mom" forever to her.

    Your bird has obviously chosen you over Mother Nature. You have done the right thing. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the love!
