In today's St. George and Sutherland Shire Leader there is a story about a 
Black-necked Stork that "slammed into their waterfront windows " of a house at 
Lilli Pilli, a southern Sydney suburb on the shores of Port Hacking.

Apparently this happened on Christmas Eve and the bird was collected by WIRES 
volunteer Rebecca Birmili of Gymea. The bird was nursed back to health and will 
likely be taken to the Shortland Wetland Centre in Newcastle.

The article is accompanied by a photo of Ms Birmili holding said bird, 
nick-named "Jabbie". No doubt about the I.D.

There is no reference to this story in the Leader website.
