Grabbed my camera - but was a little worried I might startle bird with flash photography. Tried also to look nonchalant about taking photos of sleeping fluff-ball ... knowing the dogs, my interest in 'Fluffy' would definitely pique their curiousity ... From the size and height of sapling, they simply could just shake the poor bird out of it's perch!
To my relieve I found Fluffy back on the very same branch the following night ... three nights in a row in fact. And on the fourth when she wasn't there ... I feared the worst. The dogs had sniffed her out! And birds don't usually fare well at night. But I think Fluffy (not sure whether it's a he or she), changes her sleeping branch now and again. Am glad to see her alive and well at the same spot I first spotted her last week. Not sure what species of bird she is, but she's sure fluffily cute!
