"Cheeky - Come Back!!"



Today we had a bit of a drama. We have a cockatiel named Cheeky, who thinks my youngest son Hamish is his Mum/best friend. Cheeky has the run of the house at times and because it was so hot here today we let him inside to fly around where it's a bit cooler. He's a friendly bird to most, but absolutely dotes on Hamish. Well, as Hamish walked outside the back door today - who do you think followed - Cheeky, and off he flew up onto a very high branch of one of our tall gum trees. Of course we all thought we'd never see him again - Hamish called out to him, Cheeky flew a bit closer - Hamish called again, and Cheeky flew to another branch - Hamish called, Cheeky flew even closer - then would you believe it, he climbed down a tree into Hamish's waiting hands. That's love for you!!! (And guess who was outside with my camera at the exact right time???)

Hi Dianne. I'm so happy you got Cheeky back. Hamish and Cheeky must be very found of each other. A nice, little story :-)

I love happy endings! I'll bet Hamish is so relieved that Cheeky came back to him. Smart bird!

wow! you'd have thought he would have made a bid for freedom... he must really be enjoying life with you to come back like that, how cool!
