Inseparable: Morepork chicks Sophie (left) and Rua.

Abandoned morepork chicks Rua and Sophie have found love at the Whangarei Native Bird Recovery Centre - though Rua may not be aware that Sophie could be Stephen.

Co-founder and manager Robert Webb says the way Rua is behaving it is highly likely that Sophie is female, though there is no way of knowing for sure at the moment.

The two little birds were victims of a parental "Sophie's Choice" moment high above the ground.

Nests full of fluffy chicks are overheating in the hot, muggy weather, putting all lives at risk, so parent owls are pushing some of the chicks out of the nest.
