Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Jan 05, 2015
Mina came into my care during one of my three month stays at my family's holiday house in Bali. Since this species of bird is specific to that region, it is the only time I have truly cared for this breed of bird. What attracted me initially was how beautiful they are, they have a distinctly exotic look about them. She was fine around me, but when introduced to others would show serious signs of dismay, which lead to keeping her to my room only as she was recovering from a broken leg, our initial reason for taking her in. Despite this, she ate well and remained relatively calm, eventually going on to make a full recovery, to my joy. A very special breed of bird, indeed. Unfortunately, the photograph here is a stock photo because I never did find the hard drive containing many photos of her recovery. If I do ever come across them again, I'll be sure to add them.
