Walga found by Cecilia Kinross Posted on 17 November 201522 March 2022 One of the maintenance staff found Walga (I think) on the ground near the water tower, so placed her in a small tree.I’ll keep looking for our young male
She’s a sweetie
Glad she looked like she survived her maiden flight ok
it must be so frightening to them…and no way to get back up to the nest box-
About an hour ago I decided to move her to a better, much larger tree on the edge of the wood (carefully watched and scolded by Diamond), but she didn’t stay there long, but ‘flew’ onto a woodpile further in. Again I put her in a tree (carefully watched and scolded by Bula), conscious of the ever-present threat of cats and foxes.
Poor babies – glad there are so many people looking out for them (as well as the devoted parents). I wonder where Tardy got to?
The mental picture of this beautiful young bird being moved to safety is quite an interesting one!! It’s obvious that Diamond and Bula have developed some trust of the people around the campus – they’d do more than scold if they had no trust at all. I hope Tardy appears soon.
So… are all the CSU maintenance staff currently equipped with heavy-duty gauntlets??? I imagine those talons – even fledgling talons – could inflict some serious damage!
