Hehu is visiting
This two-year old was sponsored in the 2019 season and is Otto's chick. We are not too sure whether Hehu is a boy or a girl, but s/he was sleeping in the colony one day, still there two days later - and that's never good. We weighed him/her and s/he was only 3.9kg and had a cloudy left eye. Blood analysis showed an infection AND Malaria. This bird was not well and was hiding in the box in rehab (headache maybe from the Malaria?) A whole lot of pills, salmon and peace and quiet and s/he is coming out of the box now. As s/he is our only patient we put a mirror in the pen for company. Hehu is almost ready to head out again. Phew, that was a close call - s/he would not have made it without a stint with rehab.
