Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A lovely account of the joy of photographing birds by Rosa Marie.

"A few bird shots taken over the last couple of days! The tuis do feature very heavily in the shots, as they are such wonderful birds to capture, but I have also managed to find redpoles pecking on the grass at school and a lone Rosella! I also spotted a hedge sparrow peering out from the safe haven of a bush. The waxeyes were having a feast in the school compost bin.
Our resident gammy legged blackbird entertained me as he played with his food, a juicy fat worm, then he flew onto the fence to sing to me! He was with us this time last year and we were so thrilled that he came back again this year!"

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Chewie the rabbit

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

"I came into SPCA with a damaged eye beyond repair. The wonderful vet team couldn't save it, so I had an operation to have it removed. It hasn't slowed me down at all, you just have to be aware that I can’t see you approaching me so please don't startle me.
I would love to be a single indoor bunny where I get all the human attention. I am a clean boy and will go into my large litter tray for toileting. I love gentle pats on my head and sometimes come up to you for treats. I regularly binkie around super fast, and when I'm tired I do bunny flops as I am a happy boy.
I love space and the outdoors so I will need a large grassy area with a weatherproof hutch for outside during the day. My indoor area must be big enough for me to spend the day and night comfortably. My caregivers ask that rabbits always come inside at night, to be part of the family and to keep me safe.
I could go to a home with friendly cats as I've met some before."
