This little one was rescued in Western Victoria.
The original post was on October 29, 2014.
His rescuer did all the best things and researched food and care. Last I heard it was flying free and put itself in the safety of its cage each night.
I had not heard of it for a month or so and when I inquired was told of its adventure. It had gone missing for 3 weeks and its carer feared the worst. They were invited next door for a BBQ and found the little chap locked in a Budgerigar cage. I am constantly appalled by the moronic attitude of some people.
Anyhow it is now home and knocks on the back door each night and sleeps inside on a small tree.
Here it is playing dead when surprised by a back firing motor bike.
