A really weird experience

 A couple of weeks ago at about 2 p.m. a woman called me to pick up a little possum which she found in the morning. When I drove along the gravel road I recognized a Galah sitting near the edge of the street and when I approached the bird it didn't flew away. So I stopped to have a look whether it might have been injured. The little fellow adjourned to the bushes where I discovered a second Galah. After the first bird presented his companion to me it flew away! The second bird was very weak and easy to catch. So I drove home with two creatures: an approximately 8 weeks old pinky possum and a starving cockatoo weighing only 184 g.
