Sad News

Allmänt / 2013-02-24 / 00:03:49
Yesterday was a bit of a sad day. The day before one of the parakeets had injured it´s wing and couldn´t fly, so we brought it back with us to the house. The injury was in the shoulder, but I couldn´t feel that anything was broken so we hoped that it was just a sprain and that she would be able to fly again in a couple of days. Even though I didn´t think that the wing was broken, I taped it so that she wouldn´t make the injury worse by flapping around in the box. We went out and looked for fruit in the forest and found at least a little bit, we weren´t sure that all of it was part of the natural diet, but saw that other birds had eaten of it. The next morning she had eaten all of it and looked good, even though she still couldn´t use her wing, so we gave her more fruits and left her in the box for the day. But in the evening we found her dead. We don´t know why, was some of the fruit we gave her poisonous? Was it the stress?
Fortunately she (or he) was part of a large breeding group of 7 adults with only 3 chicks, so they will have no trouble bringing up the chicks without her. But it is very sad, and we were all feeling quite low last night.
 
Some more positive news is that the first chicks will fledge within the next few days, and we have only one more group that we have to catch next week. After that we´ll have at least two weeks without the alarm going off at 3:15!

Hej Jossan!

Tråkigt att höra det där med fågeln men det är väl naturens gång...vi föds och vi dör...Denna helgen har vi lite bred and breakfast här på Skanstorget....i biblioteket sover Gunnar o Kitty med sina föräldrar...i soffan sover Anna och i köket har vi blåst upp en madrass till moster Anna! Din mamma fick inte plats men hon har varit här idag och Victor oxå! Vi har alla varit barnvakter när Linnea har varit på möhippa. Men vi saknade dej! Bebisarna har vuxit så nu får man mer kontakt med dem...skrattar och gurglar! Det bli ljusare o ljusare för varje dag så nu börjar man längta efter våren...snart så!
Sköt om dej och hälsa alla fåglarna ifrån Sverige!

kram Marie med släkt...alla hälsar!
