Ricky and Magnet say thank you!

22 November 2013

Thank you for keeping a lookout for baby birds. Since our last update, we have received two more Tawny Frogmouth chicks.

Meet Ricky and Magnet who arrived at Healesville Sanctuary this week. They have been paired together to be raised by a wildlife carer until they are old enough to be released back to the wild.

Remember, anyone who finds an uninjured baby bird is encouraged to attempt a reunion with its parents.  If unsuccessful, it should be taken as quickly as possible to the Australian Wildlife Health Centre, a qualified veterinarian or a wildlife carer. The long-term care and rehabilitation of native animals is best done by experts and, in line with Victorian law, only licensed and trained carers can rehabilitate wildlife.
