An unusual request for fellow birders.


I am involved with Wildlife care and we are looking for any birders that are
travelling from

The Whitsundays area to Cairns in the next few weeks - as per the email


Thanks to Cyclone Yasi, I have 3 Torresian Pigeons in care needing transport

to Cairns.


I am in the Whitsundays and would normally release the pigeons here, ready 

to migrate with the wild birds north. However there is a lack of wild food 

stocks in the cyclone affected area. I believe successful release will be 

hampered as there will be nowhere for them to stop off for a feed half way 

to Cairns, so feel now that it is best to send to bird carers in Cairns to 

be released with others they have in care. I have spoken someone in Cairns

and they are happy to take the birds in. I am loathe to send via regular
transport companies.


Please let me know if you know of anyone who can help.
