Update on the Stray Cockatiel

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.


About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
