Thank-you Seima, for your comments, in 62 years I have never seen one of these beautiful birds which live nearby, until I found this guy/girl injured in the road, I think that it was good luck for both of us, after this little injured bird spent the day in a box on my desk at work and after it had a meal of sugared strawberries, I was very pleased to see it fly away to join its friends

I noticed that he is injured,when I look the photo expand.

Thank you for your wonderful story!!

Best regards from SEIMA.

Hello again Seima, he is covered in strawberry juice, he did not want to leave the strawberry bowl when we took him/her back to let him go. I am glad that he/her paused so I had time to take this photo. I think that the bird was stunned by striking a car when I found it laying helplessly in the road , I think that it fully recovered while resting during the day. It flew nicely after being nudged by the finger. It was pleasing to see him/her fly away back to its friends.
