I saw a commotion through my study window and stood up to investigate. It was two mynah birds attacking something and two parakeets attacking the mynahs and in the middle of this mÃªlÃ©e was a little parakeet which was obviously the centre of attention!
The mynahs were intent on killing it, the way they swooped and pecked at its poor head. The parents were almost helpless, but even if they did get rid of the mynahs, how are they going to take this little guy back to his nest which is in the eaves?
It is now adopted by the Al-Yousif household. In addition to two dogs, a multitude of fish, 5 tadpoles, now we have a young parakeet!
This is day one with Filbert, I am sure you will see a lot more pictures in the coming weeks and months.
