This little fledgling Kereru was "picked up" by a dog last Friday and subsequently had to have surgery to suture puncture wounds. After spending time as a "Penguin imposter" at the Dunedin Wildlife Hospital in intensive care for a few days she has now been discharged 🙂

Tiny of Dinosaur Train This young kereru flew into a window during the heavy rain last week. Luckily the family were home and monitored her before calling us for rescue. The youngest family member at 2 years was entranced and was upset when we took her birdy away! This kereru suffered a hard hit but luckily no fractures or internal damage. I asked if 2 year old Abby would like to give her a nickname, the response was immediate 'Tiny'. Tiny is a character from Dinosaur Train. I can't help but wonder if their characters match. Our 'Tiny' has been whacking us with her wing and refusing to eat! She's still a bit sore and bruised so not flying yet. We're hoping after a few days rehabilitation in the aviary she'll be able to go home to her family.
