Humming bird nest - Where we lived salmon berry bushes grew abundantly and the hummingbirds loved making nests in them. Such a delight to be able to show my young children their nests with the small little eggs or baby birds in them!
THE PARROT & THE KITTEN: This kitten and parrot formed a close bond despite the bird being prey for the cat. Thankfully, the cat didn’t know that yet and decided to take a little nap with his new friend.
Radiated tortoise -- Madagascar -- These tortoises are critically endangered due to habitat loss, being poached for food, and being over-exploited in the pet trade. In March smugglers were arrested, carrying a single bag containing 21 radiated tortoises.
