I know that dead Muttonbirds, ie Short-tailed Shearwaters, have been
found in large numbers recently. But I feel that the one I picked up
from the road on Friday 27th October in The Boulevard, Ivanhoe, outside
the Recreation Reserve (Melway 319H) had come (or been blown) a long way
from the sea.
   According to the kitchen scales, it weighed only 14 ounces while
wrapped in a sheet of newspaper. No bands on legs.
   I don't know if the species, alive or dead, has been recorded in the
Heidelberg area before.
