first action of DIY Bird First Aid

Chris from Mairangi Bay

as action of DIY Bird First Aid "C-san" of Murrays Bay has been tending to a blind baby bird found on her driveway.

she has been giving it water from a pipette fashioned out of a straw, and has noticed an adult bird nearby feeding it.



she heard a terrible racket last night and went outside to find the adult bird standing in front of the cardboard box with the baby bird, screaming at a cat looking for a midnight snack.



this prompted her to want a more robust and cat-proof structure to house the bird during the night (as it is "not wanted" inside)...



she went to the local big-box hardware store to get a letterbox to do the job but contacted me when she found the cheapest "crap" letterbox to be $ND70.



she dug through our resource centre and found a small cage (for free, from MPHS Tipping Point) wood roof (from a discarded art crate), and some coffee sacks (from JDEcoffee factory in East Tamaki). she added a bell from her "craft supplies" at home, as she noticed that the bird is unsettled unless there is a chime now and again.

Attention: Bird Lovers and people with building skills.

Chris from Mairangi Bay

We'll be rescuing now-retired local legend "The Bird Lady" Sylvia Durrant's handmade aviaries and transporting them to the park we are making at Mairangi Arts Centre to bring them back to life and use in a self-learning programme about (among other things) DIY bird first aid.

I really need help/advice on how to dismantle and re-assemble the aviaries.

I would be super grateful if anyone can help in any way.

Poll: Should horse racing be banned?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The Melbourne Cup can be seen as an excuse for people to dress to the nines and get so drunk that they often miss seeing the races.

The physical and psychological pain these horses suffer is immense, with the movement against horse racing growing as animal welfare advocates call for change. What do you think? Should horse racing be banned? Vote in the poll below.
