Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

We again feature a pic from Louise Thomas. This week it is a grey warbler/riroriro.

"Nice to see a grey warbler/riroriro (Gerygone igata) in the weekend. I'm not hearing them as much now the cicadas have cranked themselves up to full volume. It's probably the end of the breeding season as well. I was interested to read that only the males do the summer warbling, apparently the females only have a short chirp call. Don't ask me why this turkey is hanging upside down - there's always one."

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Max

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Max is looking for a home.

"I was an unplanned pregnancy and brought to the SPCA to find a home.
I may look like a typical wild rabbit, but I can assure you I am not. My Mum was a domestic rabbit and super sweet. I am good with people I know, and am still young and still learning. I have an inquisitive nature and would love a home with people who will have me around them, either as a solely indoor rabbit, or mostly indoors. I will need a large outdoor area with a weatherproof hutch or shelter for days when the weather is nice. I will need to be inside as part of the family at night, so a hutch or area inside with you is important. I would also like a female rabbit for company, so if you have a lonely rabbit maybe we could be friends?
