HI HI BIRDY
That's right... He's back!
We were sound asleep this morning when at 7:00 John suddenly woke up and said "Oh My God!". I of course thought that we had slept until noon at that exclamation. To my surprise he then said, "He's Back!". Yes sir... there he was ... pecking away at the grains we had been leaving out for all the other birds. We headed outside to greet him and he was just as calm as could be. It was like he never left. After eating his fill of grain... and yes macadamia nuts, he hopped up on his chair for a nap and has now wandered off for the afternoon.
He looks great and has grown several inches in height an length. He has also put on a few lb's and his new plumage is rockin'! When we last saw him he had just a few white feathers around his neck. Now it's a full fledged ring. His beak looks a bit worn down, which we suspect might be a result of rubbing it on the wire of the coop he had been in. That happened when we had him in the coop as well. But it will heel in a few weeks. It looks like he was pretty well taken care of by his "foster parents".
Now that we have a new camera with a video feature... we will get a vid up soon.
