figbirdA pair of fig bird chicks was discovered on the ground after having fallen from their respective nests, and rescured in the city of Ipswich. They were both taken to the home of highly experienced wildlife carer, Helen, where they spent ten days being well looked after. They were fed on a diet of grapes, banana, melon and other soft fruit, with softened and mashed dog food as a substitute for the insects the mother bird would usually provide. And they are developing beautifully! Because they will soon require a bigger cage, they will soon move to the home of a specialist bird carer.
