Hi everybody,

an anonymous, Aussie finch breeder sent me this recent photo just because he like my profile pic! How sweet lol

Anyway, I was blown away by it - the story goes that he went into the aviary and this little bugger slammed right into his head!

As luck would have it he had a camera on him and took this shot.

I would love to know who, what, were but alas no reply.

Anyway, enjoy!

That's a great photo, and a good yarn, too.
Thank you.
