I checked on the progress of the bush thickknee chick in Albert Park. Last week it was a ball of fluff lying on the ground. Today it was a miniature replica of its parents. It had its neck streaking, facial and wing colours in place and was standing tall. Actually, it was wobbling tall - I think it is finding it hard to cope with its quickly growing legs. Unlike its parents, who were frozen, our hero [the Minister for Cuteness] couldn't stay still for more than a couple of moments before it felt the need to wobble about on its stilts, and walk over the back of one of its parents. Definitely a nice sight at lunch time.

Regards, Laurie.
