Roxy was barking loudly...

.....this morning.  As it was about 6 a.m. on Sunday morning, SHE thought SHE'd better do something about the noise if we still want the neighbours to like us.

 It was a little bird, just outside the gate.
It was fluttering frantically.
 Bella came to check it out, as well.
 SHE gently picked it up....
 And placed it on the grass beside a tree, but it died a little later.
We looked it up in the bird book and think it's a kind of Honeyeater.
Birds in books never seem to look like the ones you find.
RIP little birdie.

  5. They often fly into walls and such if they are being chased by a hawk or such or maybe it escaped from one. It had a gentle ending though.

  28. Poor little birdie. Fox & Scruff woke us up at 3:30am barking at our own cats. I couldn't fall back to sleep after that, well, not until it was time to get up for work.

  30. Poor little birdie. Sometimes we find birdies near our feeders that have been attacked by other birdies. Master usually euthanizes them. So sad.
