Success story

I got this photo today from Betsy and Steve. These are the first of the dozen baby GHOs who were rescued weeks ago. The ones where I tore down the old magpie nest and wired the basket into the tree. Feathered TYLER and RYAN are sitting together on the left. Feathered SPENCER is down lower right partially hidden by leaves. He's the one who was fostered to the nest and immediately accepted by both adults.

Betsy says they are all eating like little pigs and flying all over from tree to tree. This project has been a resounding success and shows just how adaptable wild birds are, even accepting help from humans.

  1. Nice to see a couple of our successes. I loved the basket idea for replacing the old nest.
