Good morning friends
Deej211 that juvenile sea eagle is beautiful. I hope, as Fancy suggested, she is not a threat to your chickens.
MyHaven I am sorry to read about your cat getting attacked also. “She is chomped up a bit” does not sound like your average domestic cat fight and I wonder if you do not have a feral cat problem as well as a fox problem?
No real news of note but I will waffle just for fun lol
The girls have been going to bed at 6pm for a couple of weeks now and as with everyone’s chooks, they have gradually gone earlier from the 7pm summer due to it getting dark earlier. However, last night they jumped from 6pm to 05:45pm, 15 minutes early! It was not overcast and I can only wonder and hope that they like their new digs so much they are going to bed early
Porter, the Koel [cuckoo] is still in residence and peeping up a storm. On Sunday I tried to offer him a meal worm but he did not know what to do with it. While he can fly pretty well, he still seems to be reliant on Mum feeding him. He appears to be used to us being around and does not fly away when we walk up and talk to him.
He landed on the lounge room window sill the other day and both cats were immediately on the other side of the window, sussing him out. He was asking them “Are you my mummy? Please feed me” and they replied “are you are lunch?”
I find myself checking up on the little guy every morning and happy to hear his call. The Miner birds were picking on him yesterday and I raced to his rescue
I hope that his trusting nature does not get him into trouble Over the road’s cat is a worry!
