A pair of fowl -- but fair -- reports made their way to Chicken Corner this week. The first is a tale of two cockatiels. The second, our most recent correspondence from Chicken Corner's water fowl correspondent.
Suzi Rogers, who lives in Echo Park and is known to many as the Edendale Library Friends Society's book sale manager, sent me this Echo Park bird story:
Last week a friend who lives in the Pico/Union area mentioned that she had found a gray cockatiel walking around her yard. Since many cats, including hers, hang out in said yard, she gathered it up in a box. Being a computer geek she immediately went on-line to see if anyone was looking for their pet cockatiel and low and behold a guy in Silverlake had just lost his beloved cockatiel "Cleo". He came right over to pick up the bird but alas, it was not his Cleo. He felt terribly let down and my friend was embarrassed and upset.
