I lost my old dog and old horse and goat to damn snakes i hate them with a passion but understand that they are apart of the circle of life and are needed here just as are the bats that many hate.

Yep that's it, but only at Christmas Time and the Tree has to have lots of lights and things - and people do all sorts of strange things. You'll learn to enjoy it too.

They work incredibly well, I'm a big fan of them. I had a cattle dog who was terrified of the rain on the roof. Pop the thunder coat on and she would go to sleep. I now have one for my border collie.

Feel good story 🐦

During the heavy winds last week, a juvenile tawny frogmouth had been knocked out of his tree in Nurse Lisa’s backyard. The tawny was given a health check the next day and after it was cleared with a good bill of health, it returned back to the site he was found. With the tawny’s parents lurking by and watching every move, Lisa made a nest out of a crate and perched him back up in the tree (which by the looks wasn’t an easy feat for her husband). The mother accepted him back straight away and took care of him in their new beaut next for 3 days and then they flew off together.

For a young bird it’s best chance of survival is to be with its mother. If you have found a baby bird remember to look for a nest, the tree it could have fallen from and evidence of parents. If you do find there to be parents, deck out a little ice cream container with twigs and hay etc. (something you would find in a nest) and place a branch diagonally from the bottom of the container, poking out the top. This allows the mother to still be able to feed and care for the little one until it learns to fly. If there is a concern there are no parents in site or you believe it to be injured, feel free to drop the bird into the nearest vet clinic.

I know many would say they're only swallows and are a pain but i have a family of them that build there nest in my horses stable . being that they build their nests out of mud and such with this hot weather it cracked and fell and the babies were on the ground, sadly one passed away as my horse stood on it but i was able to make a make shift nest out of my cats crate by taking the top off and then tying it to the perch i put up for the adults. I placed the broken nest in the bottom of the opened crate and walked away but kept a close watch out for the parents, sure enough in they came and raised the little ones and every year now they nest there I think i might put in a lidless box on the wall so they can nest in that lol

What a lucky little bird to come to grief in Lisa's back yard, must have known he get all the right attention

Well done guys.

Good work team 🦅 🐾 ❤️
