White-tailed Tropicbird

Post by Mick Atzeni » Tue Jan 29, 2013 7:59 am

To cap off an extraordinary day yesterday, Meringandan resident Julie Neilson handed in the bird of the day - an adult White-tailed Tropicbird - to local wildlife carer Trish LeeHong.

Julie found the injured bird in a paddock at their property at 1 Hansford Rd. Will have to check the map but I think this is just within our local survey area, so would be a new bird for the Toowoomba list as well. Have some photographs.

Cheers
Mick

Another younger bird was found along Gittins Rd, Withcott, the next day and handed over to Trish. Both birds unfortunately died.
