photographing and learning about wildlife
After a particular horrific thunderstorm the cat proudly walked inside the house holding in his mouth an entire nest with two baby Willie Wag Tails inside. We phoned a wildlife carer however the closest one willing to take the birds lived over an hour and a half away (by car) and was unwilling to pick them up. Needless to say after spending hours in the neighbourhood looking for the parents we gave up and brought them inside to hand raise. (Not the first time we've had to do this. The birds in our area seem to have an awfully hard time making storm proof nests!) One died overnight but the other one survived and just flew away for good yesterday. At night he still comes down to say hello but quickly flies away with his friends to roost up in the trees.
