The Parrot-Hole !

Just seen a green bird whiz past a couple of trees, rushing towards a smallish hole smack in the center of an impossibly proud tree...she has actually dashed headlong into the hole.. Surely she's knocked out senseless inside the hollow...but no! she has just reappeared - sticks out a shapely green head from the hole....a serene countenance with red eyes topping a bright-red beak(so bright a red, you think the painter has overdone Himself there!) half-amused and half-exasperated at my wide-eyed expression...shan't be surprised if she rolls her eyes over to say 'as if....'
And then it dawned on me(always takes some time, but i do get there eventually) - i see a parrot in a, not in the cage of a 'pet-lover' drawing fake peals of laughter imitating fake voices, but out here in the her home...dwelling in her very own inhibitions whatsover...she is actually FREE !!!
So thats how it feels be free ?
But at what price ? thats suicidal, isn't it?
.....Hurtling fearlessly into the unknown...
After all, how far does the hole extend ?...the questions seem innumerable and come gushing forth, not one after another but in a torrent driven by the mad current of inquiry!
Hold your breath,friend!... you'll get your answers, but you gotta try...give it your best shot and dash headlong !!!
Why....Whats in it for Me, you say ?
Well, for starters, see our good friend up there at the parrot-hole ?
She now looks from Within at the world Outside!

# this is the concluding part of a short story ;
do refer to Parts I & II below for the entire 'hair-raising' tale of the 'hare droppings' #


"Ah jus' knew air! Ah owe 'ye one Guv'nor"

And at the Next Door : A new resident - The California White

Guess i have jumped the whole warship here ;)
Well, to cut a short story still shorter - the NewZealand White had to be rushed to a vet after suffering from..what else?...Over-eating !!! And thats where he confessed & the Case was Solved !

Part II
At the next door :
"Chomp, chomp....Look at my pure-white coat...think a NewZealand White can commit such a heinous crime? ...What? the black-tinged ears? 'tis your Indian Summer that has singed my lovely let me have my grub in peace...chomp,chomp!!!

Phew! So, who's the guilty party here? Your guess is as good as mine !
All said and done, i might have to drop "the Case of the scandalous Droppings" !!!

Part I
"It Wasn't Me"
This poor chap (more commonly referred to as the Russian Chinchilla - a domestic rabbit breed) seems to plead his case quite indignantly !!!
"Aye Guv'nor, ah tell 'ye...'ye hass peeked up da rong fella...'twas dat daft NewZealand White 'xt door hoo meshed yer floor wid dese droppins', Ah Not da one 'ye lookin' fer !"
Unfortunately, the prominent reflection of the cage-bars across his (innocent?) features effectively brand him guilty ........To Be Contd.
