HADEDAS
Thought I will share with you... we have a pair of hadedas who nests in our garden twice a year.We have had at least one baby fall out of the nest every year(if they are alive I take them to a lady who raises them and then release them if possible) we now have three babies - ready to fly - in fact two of them are stretching their wings to other trees in our garden. I have never prayed so hard that these 3 will survive and fly off with their parents. So cute to watch - mom and dad in front and the babies flying behind them making little noises. They do not built a wonderful nest at all - this year my daughter even scattered sticks in the garden to assist. They are such good parents - I think a lot of humans can learn from them. The babies stay with the parents for quite a long time after they start flying. A person must put up with the noise though! We also have baby sparrows learning to fly at the moment and my staffies watch them with interest - the staffies have been confined to the back yard this week to give the sparrows a chance to strenthen their wings - if not they might be eaten.
