Oh wow, Hannah! I am mesmerized by Sunny's natural beauty and personality. Those images are absolutely amazing! Quote above captures the essence of a dilemma, and I am reminded, despite my emotions, perspective is everything.

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Thank you so so much everyone for the support and kind words it really means a lot. Sunny really is a photogenic little thing, he pulls the cutest of faces the photo of him looking down from the fence with the blue sky behind him just melts my heart!
Sunny had his first experience of proper wind today! He wasnít fantastic at it but coped well, so was a great test for him. I also took him further down a paddock that heís been before, while I fed my horses. He was worried and reluctant at first but once he realised there were little flowers to dig up he was stoked! ..plus I told him itís where all the cool Corellas hang out in the evening..

Rosetta (who has been *very* naughty lately) sends happy screeches to her friend, Sunny.
Thank you! Iím so pleased with his progress. Itís amazing to think about 4 weeks ago he was on the brink of death, now he is strong, healthy and flying like a pro!!

Sad to say the sick Corella we found yesterday didnít make it through the night 😥. At least he passed in a cool, comfortable environment with some pain relief ❤️

Sunny said hi to Rosetta and says the he also is rather naughty lately.. killing our new favourite house plant

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Iíve been looking for a Sunny update! Gosh Iím madly in love with him, and I have so much respect for your decision to let Sunny make his own choices. Seems like really the only ethical thing to do under the circumstances, although my heart, that doesnít care about ethics, wants you to wrap him up and take him inside and love him forever.

You are an amazing human.

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Thank you
Sunny had a big social fly today! He took off with a large flock of Corellas I lost sight of him over some trees so couldnít see where he went. I saw most of them land in a giant pine tree next to the Dam so gathered he was in the somewhere, I slowly made my way down there, calling out to him. He wasnít replying, but I stayed calm. Itís what he needs to be doing. I stayed down there for a few minutes holding back my tears . Then suddenly 2 Corellas flew off from the tree and I could see and hear it was Sunny he swooped down to me all excited and happy with himself. We sat on the grass for a while so he could eat some roots, he seemed rather chirpy and content, he was waddling fast everywhere he went which was rather cute and kept coming up to me for a stroke and kiss.
He actually went off again when they all left the tree but he returned to me straight away.
He also spent a long time out this evening chilling with me and the horses.
Heís had a lovely day

Oh wow, those images! And this is reading like a suspense novel. There's got to be a happy ending for both!!

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Sunny has been out almost all day so far with the wild bunch! He popped by for a play and stroke for a little while until the flock flew overhead again, off he went with the huge flock of about 800 I’d say! They were grazing on the hill and roosting in the pine trees.
So just as I was writing this sitting indoors, I suddenly heard footsteps on the cottage roof and heard Sunnys little voice calling out to me!! I am now sitting on the deck with him it brings tears to my eyes when he returns to see me. I love that he knows he can come back until he is ready to stay with his new friends forever. I’d love to be able to see how he interacts with them, he’s coming home in one piece so they mustn’t be being to hard on him Gosh I love this Bird.
