Our life and times in Mui Wo and Man Kok Tsui, Lantau Island, Hong Kong.

On loan - but for how long?
"Harley", a five year old Yellow Crowned Amazon has recently come to stay with us while her owners / parents try to sort out how to get her to join them in their new home in Canada. Because of the ongoing bird flu scares in and around Hong Kong it seems that there are very few countries that will accept importing a pet bird, even if it has been quarantined, vet checked and so forth. So for the time being at least Harley has taken up station on our balcony and is slowly beginning to get used to her new surroundings. Pecan nuts appear to be the answer to most issues with her. She craves them like a crackhead craves crack. This bird will sell her soul to the devil for a pecan nut!
