George just showed up one day at the sanctuary and did not leave. He moved into the outdoor section of one of the bunny pens. When we saw he was not leaving we built him a house and a feeding station. The unused pen has no wire on the roof area so George can come and go as he pleases. He must have lived in an aviary before as this is where he feels safe.
George is very friendly and trusting towards to volunteers and has no problem reminding us to fill his feeder and water bowl. He often struts behind us cooing until we leave our other chores to attend to his needs. He has become rather brave of late and has been seen taunting the local hawk and huge raven. In terror we have watched the chase, only to see George swiftly swoop into his personal space within the “aviary” leaving the predator literally wondering where on earth he vanished to.
We hope that he continues to stay safe and that one day he might have a mate join him. In the meantime he seems content to watch us work.
