Last weekend when we were driving through town I spotted an echidna walking down the main street! I do live in the country, but this was a very unusual sight!
Anyway it turns out it was this little guy and he was lost. But a lovely, kind person scooped him up and delivered him to the Healesville Sanctuary where he was checked to make sure he was fine, then he was returned to his natural habitat :-)
You might remember this earlier post about another echidna sighting I had :-)

This little egg was found in a pot plant in my garden. It's been abandoned. I don't know what sort of bird it belonged to, but it's very beautiful.
I have no idea how the egg got in to the pot it was in, as there is no nest in the plant in the pot and there are no over hanging trees... Maybe another animal carried it there?
We are lucky enough to have a very wide variety of birds in your garden: King Parrots, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Black Cockatoos, Crimson Rosellas, Eastern Rosellas (my favourite :-), kookaburras, Wattle Birds, Owls, Rainbow Lorikeets, Magpies, Bower Birds & Kurrawongs, as well as non-indigenous birds like black birds, starlings, sparrows & mynas :-)
