Living on the Edge

Early every morning and late in the afternoon we hang the budgies' cage on a hook on the balcony. These little birds of ours love being outdoors and Rambo (papa budgie) even mimics some of the birds who visit our bird feeder
Last week a young Red-eyed dove decided to sit on the hook above the cage. Rambo went ballistic and you could hear him telling his little family to stay calm, he is in control! (lol)
The dove was unperturbed at Rambo's hysterically screaming and sat on top of the cage. Rambo actually flew at the dove's feet pecking at them until the dove flew off. Rambo emerged the winner and hero of the day!

The Arabic word for winner is al-Fāʼiz
