It is kind of strange to feel sorry for a bird. But on our grounds we have plenty, everything from hummingbirds (they make our cat produce some really weird noises when she spots them in the palmtree outside the window) to the very common african, a woodpecker and at least one owl.
And this pair that have lived here "forever". Have no idea what they are called. Large, colourful with a plume and pretty noisy. Think large parrots though that is not what they are.
A couple of weeks ago one was found dead on the driveway. And now I hear the other one calling and calling, day in and out. I assume it may be one of those species that "bond for life".
Which is why I actually feel a bit sad on behalf of a bird.
