Hi I'm in Auchenflower Brisbane, my wife just found and brought home a baby noisy miner (she said it was on the ground, shivering and no parents around and no obvious place to place back into a tree or anything). it's a fledging, well i don't think it's fully fledged yet but looks like (nestled in her jacket) like it might fledge soon. It's a little chirpier now it's had some warmth and shelter.

What should we feed it? What is the number of an animal rescue service in Brisbane that can help? I realise they form strong family bonds, so probably can't just be raised and released randomly back into the wild.

And no I don't really feel like a lecture apropos to the recent discussion about the morality of the noisy miner. From my perspective it's an individual life that deserves respect.
