I couldn’t capture all 5 in the vid but this one was so inquisitive I settled for videoing him!

awww they're cute!

Not so cute but super exciting (to me) as well was finally watching one of my beloved house guests grab a taxi...

Lamprochernes nodosus

Book scorpions and their likes are quite useful animals (hunting mites) as well as they're a sign of perfect indoor climate.
I smile every time I see one, now for the first time airborne

PS: apparently they often use flies for transportation, although you usually don't spot it... funny little things!

Mrs Hasi warned me before I came home today... kids are all over the place and our new house guest!

That's what she was talking about:

 

IMG_20190718_223455.thumb.jpg.80ab13640ddabc675deb56e250ff2e6a.jpg

So this little magpie fella fell out of its nest. My suspicion is towards a young cuckoo kicking about but I may be totally off track with that lead.

Anyhow, I looked up what to do now... feeding time every 30min WTF! But kids are out of (pre) school for summer holidays, so hopefully they take good care of the guy!

Might keep you posted on our success 😬😬😬

Couple days later our house guest appears to have come to new levels of strength. No more sitting and crouching all the time, but now there's movement within the nest! It was only today in the morning when I discovered poor fella has a broken leg...

wouldn't properly get up on his feet or grab a stick with it, so I went down to the workshop and fetched a piece of low temp thermoplastic. Now dude got a cast

They say bird bones take a week or two to heal, so we think it's safe to remove brace by end of next week... hopefully it works out as planned so the little guy can continue to learn his stuff!

now there's two of these greenhorns... again a broken leg there. Oh boy, my older son even found a third one dead pretty sure it's the work of an infant cuckoo up in the original nest...
