Dave Stanley was scooting down his Horsham Downs driveway t’other day, when a little bird shot past.
It turned out to be a fantail chick, and the mother soon appeared. Dave and wife Pam spent the next hour or so with the family and were thoroughly enchanted. Every now and then mum would lose sight of her baby, and they helped coax it into the open and make it chirp so she could find it again.
“The baby was tired, but mum kept coming back with more food. It was great to watch.”
They took many photographs, and sent N8N some. Must admit, we’re very keen on birds here at N8N, and yet we’ve never, ever seen a fantail chick. Will keep a sharp eye out now!
Thanks Dave and Pam.
And how about this for beautiful?
