This morning found a bedraggled juv by the roadside at Griffith Shops.  By the time I got it home to photograph, it was sufficiently active to get out of the enfolding towel, and make a lot of noise.  Took it back to where I found it and placed it in small tree in centre of photo below.  2 RWBs took an immediate interest. Prospects not all that good as it couldn’t keep a grip of a perch.  Seemed to be a male perhaps 3 weeks out of nest.  Someone else might come across it.
