There is an aviary escapee of the above bird in Giralang. Bred in captivity so quite vulnerable , YTBC from same aviary about to be caught to be taken to a vet to be euthanised because it also ‘escaped’ and was hit by a car . Licensed owner passed away a month ago. 

Just to let you know in case eagle eye thought we had a new bird in the area .

I hope it got off the ground & is as safe as it can be .
