RIP little blackbird

We found this little blackbird on our lawn yesterday. It either fell out of the nest or tried to fly without succes or got attacked. Who knows. We tried to feed it, but eventually it died, probably from internal injuries. At least it was comfortable in Alexis’ cage without any of the gazillion cats that seem to be lurking in our garden. Eventually it died, but got a proper burial from our daughter the animal lover.

The latest of Alexis

Alexis decided to fly away a couple of days ago. Off she took, over the sleep out to join the ducks in the creek on the other side of our fence. She came flying back only a day later, to waddle straight into the quiet safety of her open cage. She fell asleep straight away. She’s like a dog now, sitting in front of the back door, waiting for us to let her in :-).
