Top picture is of a Brown Quail found in Vimiera Park,Terrys Creek after being attacked by a free roaming cat. The owner of the cat brought the injured quail to me. After taking it to the Sash vets in North Ryde for urgent medical attention, we took the bird all the way to this man, Josh Cook in the eastern suburbs. Josh kindly took on the responsibility for its care & on going medical attention. Unfortunately the bird was not able to be returned to the wild due to its injuries.
Josh was recently involved in the rescue & raising of three orphaned Kookaburra nestlings who lost their home when the iconic Fig trees in Randwick (story below) were felled. The photo shows Josh with the three now juvenile Kookaburras he has raised. What a hero!
