Of Robins and Peahens

It's like a birdfest at my house at the moment.  We have one peacock in the house (he wears a diaper) and one button quail (in a cage) and now we are the proud owners of Batman...the robin.  Yes you read that correctly, we have a baby robin at the house.  A friend of my DD1 found it and thought it was dead.  He was in the process of burrying it and it moved.  ACK, so he called her and asked her to come get it and make it live.  So Batman came to our house.  It has been with us for about a week and has doubled in size.  We hope to release it soon.  Here are a few pictures I took the other day of him.

It has this perpetual scowl on it's face all the time. So cute and funny. As soon as we know it can find food on it's own we will let it go.

You remember the peacocks we have right? And that Osirus is my daughters "baby"? Well she has the cutest video of her, coming when she is called and then another one of her jumping up on to her arm. Normally pea fowl are not friendly at all. This one, and her brother Blu are totally friendly, but she is especially so.

I have a photo of the quilt I was working on but left my camera at home so I will have to show you tomorrow! Also, class with Suzanne Marshall tomorrow. Can't wait! What do you have planned for the weekend?? ~XOP~

Ok, I'm still trying to recover from the news that you have a diapered peacock in your house.

Love the videos :0) I have raised many a little bird in my day. I think my son brought them home on purpose. I would love releasing them and for a week or so I would call out "Babies" and they would come to see me. Made me feel like Snow White or Cinderella LOL.
