Bird Family - Noisy Miners

Today's photo comes with a story.
During the week, my mother-in-law heard a splash in her pool then looked out to find a little bird hovering over the water. The baby bird had fallen in and gone under. The mother was trying valliantly to pull the baby out but she wasn't strong enough. The daddy bird was looking on, very concerned, from the pool fence. My mother-in-law quickly grabbed the net and saved the little bird. The next morning the three birds were waiting for her at her back fence and garbled as if to say, "Thank you."

Yesterday, these three were sitting in the tree at the corner of the back yard. I'm pretty sure it's them.


  1. Congrats on the new name. I like it! Also like this picture.

  2. Wow how amazing.
    Great story - glad it had a happy ending :)

  3. What a cute story! How funny, these are the cheeky devils that dive bombed me at the park the other week. They are fiercely protective of their young... and quite devoted also, so it seems :o)
