We've all heard of sheepdogs, well here's Bella in her primary post as a birddog.
With a rookery in the trees just across a narrow road and both fox and badger sets beneath them, the dangers to small or lone birds are ever upresent. And just to top it off, sparrow hawks, red kites, kestrels and buzzards watch over our hillside from above.

The bird snuggling into her warmth here is a white rhea chick just 48 hours old.

Looks like a duck. Walks like a duck. Must be a dog. :-)

Well I was expecting to find a post about the rhea coin, but these have to be the cutest of animal pics! Am I right on thinking these grow into very big birds?

A rhea coin? Is there really such a thing? And yes. They grow into very big birds, like miniature ostriches. If you're really interested I had thought about doing a post...

Great photos! Bella looks like a big softie. But if I was a kite I think I'd look for another meal and not risk her being hawk friendly.

I would never have have guessed that the rhea was only 48hrs old! Just adorable!
