Hi Barbara,

John is correct, so be very careful how you proceed with the possession of 
these birds or taking any birds into your possession in the future.

However I think you've done the right thing in alerting a forum that has 
members with the sort of qualifications that John mentions and data from 
deceased individuals can give valuable information about bird movements in some 

Shy albatross records and measurements in particular, due to recent taxonomic 
changes, could be of great interest to the seabird scientific fraternity at the 

You might contact SOSSA directly perhaps (internet will give contact details) 
or the Australian Museum to find out how these birds might be documented and 
disposed of correctly.

Kind regards,

Allan Richardson
