Rescued baby Elegant Parrots

Late last year I got a phone call from someone who had pushed over a dead tree in the middle of their paddock and moticed three little chicks fall out on the ground. I handraised them and later released them on our farm. There were two males and 1 female.

We have a few avairies and I took this quick photo a few weeks after they were released. All three hung around for a few months before disappearing. I think/hope they probably headed towards the more open grasslands on the next hill that seems to be the sort of habitat they prefer.
