Hi all,

I have an unfortunate update on the Brush Cuckoo I reported from my garden in 
Wavell Heights, Brisbane yesterday. The cat brought it in!!!

Fortunately I was able to get to it in time - our cat, a large male Burmese, 
brought the bird upstairs and he (the cat) looked extremely pleased with 
himself, as cats generally do.

Anyway, I grabbed him and he let the bird go, which immediately flew off, 
apparently unharmed minus a few feathers, but probably in shock. I'm hoping it 
won't be prone to nasty infections.

I guess this must happen often to young, inexperienced birds in unfamiliar
