Dr Cro Dolittle.



Yesterday morning was filled with wildlife moments. Early on I was pestered by a Squirrel who seemed to want to come indoors to use the laptop. He was knocking on the big studio window right by my left hand side; I should have taken his photo.

Then later this baby female Blackbird appeared. I was leaning over by our outdoor tap, and she flew onto my back. She stayed there for quite a while until I simply had to stand up.

Later I fed her with some Brioche soaked in milk.


I think she's adopted me as her Dad. Later in the day, she joined us for supper.


I think I may have started something!

    1. I rather hope she goes, the sooner she finds her own way in life, the better.

    1. It's very reassuring when animals have such faith in us humans.

  12. I love this story! I have a bit of a thing for birds and I feed the masses. I was thrilled when a King Parrot (a large green and orange bird here in Australia) trusted me enough to feed from my hand and would hang upside down from the roof, watching me when I was on the porch. He comes back regularly and brings his family, too. I feel privileged.

    1. On the other hand, it annoys me when birds don't trust me, but I suppose they have to be wary.

  13. I wonder if she was hand raised by someone who thought she was old enough to fend for herself.

    1. I think she had parental problems. Last night when I went to bed, she was in the bedroom.

  14. Well, I could poke fun at you-man with pet bird and all- but recently a friend gave me her old rooster. She had to move off her farm. The other roosters picked on him, I gave him some special attention and now the dang thing waits for me by the back door every day!!

    1. Yesterday the bird had a run-in with our cat, so maybe she'll be a little more wary now, although (as I said above) I found her in my bedroom last night.
