2010 - One early morning on returning home I chanced upon this injured beautiful exotic looking bird. I picked it up. It didn't resist at all and brought it home. It could not fly. It just lay on its side for a couple of hours. There after I was amazed that it was hobbling around and hiding behind the CPU. After some research we discovered that it is a BLUE WINGED PITTA, so I nicknamed it Peter. Its a migratory bird. After feeding it its favorite meal...w-o-r-m-s, it quickly recovered in 2 weeks
Hubby sent it to the Parks and Wildlife and having checked that it was strong enough they set it free. Though i wanted to keep it, birds need to be free. "Nice to have met you ... Pete"
