Laughing Dove

Bought a pair of Laughing Dove and placed one that looked like a male in an old traditional cage. Previous occupant (Lanun) sent to a friend's house for breeding purposes.
This is still a young pair. In fact was waiting fir them to be weaned before bringing them home. Now waiting patiently for it's eery laughing song ;-)

Swiss Army Knife

Couldn't resist buying a Swiss Army Knife today. On sale @ RM230, it is one of those complete set. With plaster, compass, matches and what not. In my lifetime, I have managed to lose at least 2 of such knives. I believe in usage, not so much of collection ;-)

Hmmm.... a new toy for me on my bird related excursions. Couple with a parang, fresh water and lunch box, I am ready for business :-D

Moving the Tortoises

Today, I decided to move the tortoises to a bigger enclosure. It's a balance between comfort and ease of maintenance. I have to compromise on the later :-(

Carried them in a metal dog/cat cage....

The most stable among them are the Red-footed tortoise. Sharing a banana & eating mealworms. Settling in almost instantly.

Glad to see that the Asian Brown Tortoise is doing well and less afraid from the first time I got it from a friend.

The Elongated Tortoise (barely seen in the background) is a lot more shy.... hmmm hopefully all is well :-)

Cage? Bird Stand?

Saw a unique cage or shall I say bird stand today while away on a visit to some shops.

More interestingly saw the most numbers of Palm Cockatoos in my entire life. All more than 30 birds. What a sight ;-)

Even more interesting.... my friend bought an albino common myna there for RM200.

Even even more interesting.... saw some of the most beautiful Shamas in the world ;-)
