Anyone could report the bird in need of care to WIRES or another Wild life
Rehab Organisation. WIRES and other rehab organisations are licensed though
NPWS to care for animals who are injured, orphaned etc and release them when
they are well again. The licence gives the members of the org the authority
to remove the animal, keep and care for it.
Members of wildlife rehabilitation organisations in NSW all volunteers which
can lead to a variable response unfortunately.
Birds live (as we all know) on a fine line and by the time they do come to
ground they are usually very unwell. This doesn't prevent necessarily
prevent them being rehabed and released following such an event.
One of the things going for this bird is that so many people are looking at
it and monitoring it. This means that the moment it is unable to fend for
itself it is likely someone will be there. If a person is able to approach
and capture the bird then it definitely needs to be in care.
The relevant org is WIRES New England (Central Northern NSW), their phone
number is 0500 855 333
