Here in Australia

by Tara Louise
(Ascot Vale, Victoria, Australia)


The little girls that I nanny found this little (unable to fly, maybe too young?) bird on their trampoline. We looked for a near-by nest, no luck. We're giving it lots of water and bread. However, the vet says if we take it to them, they'll just put it down. So, we're doing our best to nurse him/her back to health. But we are very curious as to what kind of bird he/she is! We live in Australia, keep that in mind. The only distinct description is that he/she puffs their chest when feeling threatened.
