Goodbye to dragons

Goodbye to dragons

Hi folks,

While I might not have taken active part in your forums, I do write on parrots. One series has been on clipping wings that I extracted into my Livejournal here.

http://shanlung.livejournal.com/65601.html

I was also fairly active in Wikipedia - African Grey Parrot. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_Grey_Parrot
Of greater importance , will be the 'discussion' that you all can go to when you click on the tab 'discussion' at the top or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:African_Grey_Parrot
You might like to go there to make this to be more reflective and useful to all in the community.

Its been a long time I wrote to all since I came over to Brisbane.
I disliked staying in hotel and I quickly got a place on a 6 month lease to get out of that hotel. I am now counting down the 3 months left to end of that lease to get a house to stay in. Thats because I am not allowed to have any creatures, furred or feathered. As this place has no balcony either, I am frustrated by calls of rainbow loris, pied magpies, SC2s that sang in trees and ground and I not able to interact with them. So much so that I even befriended the redback under the steps of this leased apartment.

In office, I spend my lunch breaks by the side of a creek. There were these 4 water dragons. Eventually I gave them scraps and then I ended up buying kitty kibbles to feed them. My wife came over a couple of weeks last month and took some photos that you can see in http://www.flickr.com/photos/shimmertje/sets/72157594547160392/

Without any other creatures, they became my lunchtime friends, for three months. And in the last week, to the stage that I was able to rub the big alpha queen on her head. She kept the other three some distance away.












Then starting from this day Monday, I was seconded to a client and will be working with them on a big project. That meant I will be at their office and no longer going to my old office.
While thats exciting to me, I was sadden to say goodbye to the dragons.
