Birdy is still reluctant to fly

It’s only been 9 days, if our observation is correct.

Bella and Felix have been calling very often for Birdy to start flying lessons but he is reluctant.

Meanwhile this cat has been eyeing the nest and the birds. We use the water spray to chase her away. Luckily we’ve installed the netting, otherwise this cat might just come in and attack the nest.

Cleo raised the alert. Thank you, Cleo.

Birdy is actually already very big now. But I read that it can take as long as 14-18 days before they fledge.

Meanwhile, both Bella and Felix continue feeding and encouraging Birdy to fly.
