I haven’t seen the stray cockatiel around in the trees since last week. I took the bird cage off the table and put it back on its chair. I emptied the seeds in the safe spot where a couple doves come to eat whatever seed I have to spare and Luna watches, drooling. Now I have seven pounds of bird seed, so I will dole out some seed every day. I want to make sure the doves eat all of the dole and don’t leave any leftover to attract rats or other varmints.
The cockatiel isn’t around, but a mockingbird is doing a good job of adding the cockatiel tune to her repetoire. I hope the bird found its way back home.
