After being rescued and nursed back to health by a young family members in Newport, Australia, a magpie named Penguin has actually become a normal visitor and close friend at the Bloom family’s home, having fun with them and also being available in to hide when it rains.
Penguin was found flying on the ground near a tree in 2013 by Noah, who is now 11.
After being nursed back to health by husband and wife Cameron and Sam and their children (Sandwich, 13, Noah, 11, Oli, 9), Penguin was allowed to fly free, yet still returned frequently to spent time with the family.
She plays catch, saunters through their home and even perches on their shoulders– all while Cameron Bloom takes gorgeous photos.
The bird waits for the family to leave their house before flying on her own method the morning, and greets the kids when they get home from school;
“It’s like a dog wagging its tail – she rests there in the tree and flaps her wings like she’s excited,” Noah’s dad told ABC News.
