Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature a picture of a starling by Louise Thomas.

"The variety of plumage at the moment on young birds as they transition into their adult feathers is amazing. I think a few years ago I would have thought of starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) as a dozen different species if I thought of them at all. Many of the new generation still have their brown heads, but are developing their star-spangled chest feathers. Mature feathers coming in on their backs are beautiful, with pale brown borders and the middles an iridescent green in the sunlight. Nature is an artist."

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Captain John

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

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."
