The Eagle has landed!

After six months studying in the United States of America 
daughter No 2 
has returned to the nest this morning.


She has had an amazing time living in New York
and travelling through California
where she really learned to fly.

This Little Mother Wren 
has a nervous flapping of wings 
and a scratching of her head
when she sees the video of her young Wrenlet 
jumping out of a plane!


Wrenlet 2 arrives home to find her 
Mother Hen has spent the entire week running around like a headless chook,
dusting and cleaning her room
and generally preparing for her return.
Well I might as well enjoy one week 
with one immaculate & tidy kids bedroom!

Plus I'm getting to the pointy end of my June minimalist challenge
where by each day I throw out the same number of items as the date
 I'm hoping she has been away so long, she won't remember half the items
I've jettisoned from her room this week!

I have even moved her desk and bed around in her bedroom,
Well we don't want her to think that nothing has changed 
since she has been away!



It's been a week of birds.
We had Problem in the Park earlier
with our noisy sulphur crested cockatoos.

These cute parrot photos were taken in January 
at Healesville Sanctuary
by Irina Falconi and Shelby Rogers
who were visiting from the US 
whilst playing at the Australian Open.

This week we have been cheering them on from afar
at the Wimbledon qualifying tournament.

Which reminded me of our lovely day at Healesville Sanctuary.
There is no better place to take International guests
for a taste of Australian wildlife in a natural setting.

Healesville looked after our professional tennis players exceedingly well.
Here is one of their photos from their Close Encounter with a koala

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend
I'm off to start the weekend's chuck out
I need to find 43 things to throw out
I will soon have my nest back in order!
Linking with Saturday Critters
Thanks to Eileen
