this is the little b u g g e r ...

mid last week a juvenile butcher bird turned up on our deck
when i walked outside he wasn't frightened at all, and followed me
so i got him a couple of small pieces of meat - he took them from my hand

over the next 2 days he was managing to get scraps of food from 3 family members - this started to concern us a bit as we don't want a wild animal dependent upon us for food. yesterday he flew into the house and sat on a chair before i shooed him away. this morning he tapped on the sliding door until someone answered (my husband - lol) and then chatted away for at least 2 hours before my 3yo son insisted on giving him a treat - so now we've decided he will get one treat (about 1/2 teaspoon) per day - he's just too cheeky
