Owl with broken wing.....it had a strong grip though....its claws went into my finger when i picked it up

That's a good, but sad, image. What became of it Fred?

It eventually ran off. I hope a cat didn't get it. It was a busy day at the temple with a big festival on and it had fallen from a tree. I put it in a cage for a while but felt sorry and removed it. Asked around if anyone was able to care for it or not but no takers. As a monk I wasn't in a position to jump on a motorbike and take it to the vet.

A broken wing is a death sentence for a wild bird usually. Maybe not for an ostrich, certainly any that need to fly to feed/escape.

I once untangled a small owl from the fishing net that is used to grow cucumber vines, it's talons were as sharp as a hypodermic needle......ouch!

I found these 3 also. They like to hang out on the fan by my desk. They also love to be fed by my wife!! Me too!

They look like sun parakeets, a native of South America...

They are endangered in the wild.

Sun Conures. They call em Som Canoua or something sounding like that in Thailand. I got the more yellow one in Dec 2011 and she was about a month old.

The other 2 we got as newborns in April 2012. Fed em with syringes. They are great birds and very smart. Like having 3 little kids. The older one took right to

the new ones so nice happy family now.
