We anticipate the little fella will be leaving us within a week or two. He's been pecking at the bottom of the cage - whether he's actually been pecking up seeds or not, I'm not sure, because as soon as I turn to look at him he freezes, stops what he's doing, and studies me as closely as I'm studying him! But he's on the right track. He's also beginning to exercise his wing feathers, so that's promising. I put the cardboard inner tube of a kitchen roll inside his cage and he's sheltered in there now..... yet he seems to know when he needs food and makes himself conspicuous. Whoever coined the phrase 'bird brain' was so wrong!
