Yep!!!! believe it or not this is for the inside of the house. Temperature reading outside is 35 degrees.
Now I certainly know for the rest of the country this can be considered pretty much mild temp wise, but here in the Sunshine State we haven’t experienced but one or two really cold nights up until now.
So what better way to heat up a cold house and warm up some amazing avians, and one chilled to the bone bird caretaker??
Of course french toast cooked very slowly on a gas stove.
All the outside birds were brought in last night even though they can easily take these temps as they have boxes to get in and ways to keep warm. But why not give them a change of scenery too. We had boarders and Birdy Boot Camp birds go home yesterday so cages were available to use for them. Now mind you this in itself causes a lot of ruckus among the rest of the crew.
Skipper and Daqueri who have been in and out of M.A.R.S. for years, are well known by many who frequent our rescue and sanctuary. They are, put simply, trouble makers. When they enter a room all he.. breaks loose. Fortunately after strategically placing a few blankets and comforters to block the view of them from some of the very agitated birds, all soon became quiet once again.
Again, all here at M.A.R.S.,thank all of you who read our blog and continue to keep up with all the goings on at Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary. It is never very dull for very long, and we only wish there was more time to share more stories with you. Lately raising funds to keep going has been our focus. And that in itself is story waiting to be told.
More soon from M.A.R.S.. Please think of us – and consider a donation or become a M.A.R.S. member. We need your help to continue all we do to help all the avians. And do not forget to check out our Facebook page for more info and pictures.
