Hullo Neighbours, it is not Friday Feathered Friend but I thought you might enjoy this post from Rosa Marie.
"The morning just got better and better for me, thanks to Nycki Proctor who messaged me to say that a hawk had got into her neighbour's empty aviary through an opened door and couldn't get out again and did I want to come around and photograph it?
Apparently it had got in before through a hole in the wire which had since been fixed up but it was still trying to get out that way!
Luckily it was still in the aviary, even with the door wide open, so I took lots of photos of it before we decided that I needed to climb up the ladder and prise open the mended part for it. After I got down, it was still in the aviary so I just kept snapping away at it till it figured out how to get out again. It then did a bit a circle around the house to say goodbye before it flew off into the distance.
A lovely way of getting myself invited for a coffee and a good old chat!
I have since been made to realise that this is a falcon/karearea."
This week we feature a cat with the unlikely name Ned Kelly, who belongs to John Kelly from Carterton.
"Rehomed and renamed Ned Kelly. Every inch a rebel. Moved from the country into town, Carterton."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on email@example.com with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.
Captain John was recently adopted by a family. Here is what they had to say.
"To the wonderful people at SPCA. On Tuesday, Captain John came home with us to his new furever home. Safe to say he has adjusted well and is loving his new life. He has discovered the confines of the kid’s bed.
He is completely calm with three kids and two dogs. Thank you for looking after him until he came to us."
