Flight went awry ....

Postby Erithacus » Thu Jun 03, 2010 7:57 am

Cocoa making an S-shape flight rather than her usual straight line flight.


As I was approaching Cocoa after her 'S' flight, she flew to me instead of perching on the bar which she normally did. I assumed that she didn't want to play on the bar anymore. I took her to the nearby bench to rest for awhile before proceeding with the last flight. She took off as usual in her last set of flying exercise for the evening. As she was approaching the bar Cocoa didn't want to land and she flew away from it. The line then got entangled to a tree and she flew zig zag and the line got caught in another tree and she crashed into my daughter who was sitting on the bench.

I quickly ran to her rescue and removed the line. I let her settle down before going home.

These are the pics taken after her flight ordeal.
