Hey heres a thought for some of you, :) No matter what page is run, for lost pets, be it birds dogs cats anything, please remember the work that is going on in the back ground. Many times there are people so dedicated to finding pets you somehow lost, on their own time, for no pay :) Would it be so hard to pop up a post and say how lovely it was to get your pet back, and or, God forbid, drop by a coles and spend $2.50 on a block of chocolate for the person who got your family member back safe to you.??? Sorry I dont want chocolate, but so many times we reunite birds with people and they act like entitled coots that think somehow this is our job???? Well, its not!!! We do it because we either know what it is like to lose a pet, or the love of the animals we are working to get back to YOU is so great, that we will do anything to get them home. Just have a think about it please. As I said this goes for all rescues, pages or members of public that reunite you with your loved pet.
Cheers for reading, and thanks if your not some of those we have dealt with recently that are quite entitled human beings
⚠️ Attention, attention ⚠️
Masked Lapwing (commonly referred to as Plovers) season is in full swing and it has come to our attention that we need to remind everyone of a few things.
❗We do NOT remove or relocate 'plover' eggs. (This also applies to you)
❗ We do not have methods for "making them go away" or "moving them out of my yard"
❗They are not "just a plover". They are an Australian native that deserves the same protection and RESPECT every other Australian animal does.
❗You do not under any circumstances forcibly hatch and / or damage the eggs.
❗'Plovers' spurs are not poisonous and typically cannot hurt you. 'Plovers' have been known to use these spurs as defence on predatory animals trying to interfere with the 'nest'. It is a very last resort for these guys to make physical contact while swooping and defending, this applies with other animals or humans.
'Plovers' do what every parent does, they protect their offspring. They protect them from harm. They give them every chance they possibly can to be okay.
They only have a voice and a swoop during incubation to try and ensure their young are safe and hatch.
Incubation lasts between 28-30 days. This is the period 'Plovers' are most protective.
The more suburbia gets built up and habitat gets taken away, the closer we get to these animals that are just trying to do what you are in this world. Survive.
We live in their homes, not the other way around and this expands well beyond 'Plovers'.
Something we all need to remember and be respectful to.
When you have lost your pet, in our case, birds, we completely understand the urgency and loss you are feeling. As admins of this page, board members of the rescue or what ever, I am sure we have all had a situation where our beloved pets have gone missing. Co
This is not a hate on post or a post where by I want nor encourage people to hate on anyone but a post because one such bird has come in. Please when you are purchasing a bird, or own one already if you do not know how to wing clip, DONT. While I at one stage did agree with wing clipping I no longer do, unless there is extenuating circumstances. But when that is so, then please, research your vets or shops and make sure they know how to clip also. OLD AVIAN ways says to clip one wing. Please do
