Cobalt our baby Lorikeet

Our mother lorikeet Emerald passed away about 6-7 weeks ago.
 She had come every where with us, even moving houses,
 lorikeets can live up to 35 years but she only lived until she was eight.

Leaving us with this cute little fluff ball.
Who is just 5 days old in this picture on the day we found him alone in his nest.

Here he is enjoying a cuddle with his mum Louise
 Also known as the artist River Girl.

 He now looks like this, it is special to watch him grow.

Here he is investigating the camera and wanting more pats and cuddles he is the snuggliest bird we've ever had. When we put him back into his cage he runs to his blanket and snuggles underneath and when you put your hand into his cage he comes running over for a cuddle. He is adorable!

He is eating very well now and growing nice and big, he has all of his feathers almost, he is just a little bit downy under his wings.

He spends his days in his cage now, it is filled with toys and perches a hammock and he is just starting to feed himself with bowl of dry food and water just going in this week.

Book review turtles

This book is a junior non fiction for younger readers.
It is published  by Gareth Stevens and written by Tim Harris, I thought the book was handy but not that great. It is about the many species of turtles and there habitats it has good pictures of all the species and little info sheets about each species as well.
