Cockatoo Rescue

Today we carried out a wildlife intervention. Inge's friend Debbie feeds the wild cockatoos and the one in the pictures was having a hard time feeding due to its bill being too long.

We managed to catch him on Debbies verandah and it was a trip to the vet to see what could be done. It seems he/she has a bird Aids called "beak and feather" disease which is not curable, seems it affects parrots and the like. Nothing much we can do.

The vet cut his beak and we released him back at Debbies home. Debbie will keep feeding him and we'll see how he gets on.
