I love being around birds of all kinds, but admit, corvids and parrots are favourites--they are such characters.

My First Rescue

by Yvonne Morrin     (Bats Qld) 

Rescued red flying foxNow I have finished my course of vaccinations, I have finally started rescuing. My first bat was entangled in fishing line with a fishing hook embedded in her side – the constriction injury was severe, and she was euthanized.  
The second had been up a food tree for a week without flying away, and appeared to have a wing injury. He could clamber around the tree perfectly well, just out of reach of my pole! Finally I got him to the ground, and he began to crawl, his wing injury very apparent now. Unfortunately he was a euthanasia case too.

Magpie Blessings

 by Veronica Mather

One legged Australian magpie 

 For several weeks I watched out of the kitchen window as a magpie, now known as Maggie rested in our backyard. From a distance I could see that he had an injured leg, but whenever I attempted to get a closer look he would fly away.
