Hi Everyone,

When I went to work today, I heard of a strange bird that had been collected
from a verandah in northern Bendigo (Epsom), after the owner called DELWP
for assistance.
To everyone's surprise the bird was identified as a female Plains Wanderer
(photo attached).

I was particularly surprised as I've been helping with Plains Wanderer night
surveys within Terrick Terrick NP (about 100km north of Bendigo)for the past
two years, and not seen a single PW during this period.

Anyway, the PW has had a vet check and given the all clear to join a
breeding program with Melbourne Zoo.
I'm assuming that the bird may have been stunned after hitting a window,
perhaps from a night flight in the early hours of the morning!
