Eddie, a female Eclectus Parrot comes to visit!

This morning Hayley arrived at school with a new addition to her family. Yes, you guessed it- a beautiful 8 month old Eclectus Parrot named Eddie.

Eddie was saved and looked after by one of Hayley’s friends who is a vet. She has been hand reared and so, is unable to be returned to her natural habitat in the wild.

This very lucky bird has now taken up residence in Hayely’s home and will be protected from the natural forces that face animals in the wild.

A special thank-you to Janet who posted a comment on our blog and helped us to correctly identify the species of parrot! 🙂

What is your favourite Australian bird and why?

Do you know what to do if you find an injured animal?
