Rosella update

Glad tidings!

The injured rosella rescued by this blog on Australia Day seems to have made a full recovery.

Today we phoned Rose, the wildlife rescue lady who took the bird into her care; she told us that the wing wasn’t broken after all. Rather, she thinks he was disabled by a pulled tendon. After a couple of days rest, he now seems to be able to fly without a problem.

Rose says she will soon release the lucky rosella back into the wild. This has been, for us all, a very satisfying outcome.

And hats off to Rose and her fellow wildlife rescue volunteers, some of the many unsung Aussie heroes that make all our lives that much richer.

That's so sweet.

Yes, the world is full of much better people than me, and I'm glad they exist and have the opportunity to do these things. Bless 'em.
