Hi Fellow Birders:,

Further to my previous message; as pheasant coucals are commonly known as Suicide Birds - flying out in front of vehicles; I wonder why a pheasant coucal would want to get into a Whirly Bird Ventilation System, and how would it get into the system as there is not much space in the mesh.  Perhaps it was chasing insects or may have been sucked into the system during  strong winds.
