A quote direct from this mornings Sydney Morning Herald. (Column 8)

"WHAT is a Red-footed Booby? The cynical could list dozens of red-handed
boobies, mostly politicians.  It is however a Sula sula, a large seabird
that normally lives on Cocos and Christmas Islands or in the Coral Sea.
A Central Coast resident found one sheltering in his garage on Monday,
Exhausted and a long way from home.  WIRES is caring for it and will
eventually send it to north Queensland for release.  It has brilliant
red feet, and a one metre wingspan."

Alan this wouldn't be your garage would it?
