    • Congenital Deafness?
      Several years ago I adopted a budgie who had been rescued from an animal hoarder. Alice appeared to have PTSD, and she didn't interact properly with other budgies.

      This White-browed Coucal - also known as Burchell's Coucal - is common in many parts of Africa. "Streaky and sneaky" best describes these birds, because you'll be lucky if you see one. Dew from their dense habitat often dampens their feathers. Then, they hop to the top of a bush and spread their (BirdNote)
