Eleanor’s mummy, Natalie, brought in their pet bird which is a Green-cheeked Conure called Billy.
Billy has recently had quite an adventure! He escaped and flew up a tree so Eleanor’s daddy, Chris, climbed the tree to try to get him back in his cage. Unfortunately, Chris then became stuck in the tree! Natalie rang the fire service who arrived with a big ladder to reach them. They also had to close the road to keep the area clear and safe for everyone around and the electricity company had to shut off the power as there was a cable close to the tree! Luckily, all ended well and Chris and Billy were safely rescued.
Natalie taught the children to use quiet voices around Billy so as not to scare him and also not to put their fingers in the cage – because Billy can bite!
