Bird Tales
Marvin
Marvin was a deluded juvenile Dusky Wood swallow who thought he was a Wedgetail eagle! Residing next to the computers in the Roo Gully office, Marvin became quite a character. Everyone loved him.
Sadly, Marvin died after succumbing to an infection that entered his body from an injury he sustained before he was brought to Roo Gully.
One of our bird successes!

This Tawny Frogmouth came into care after being found sick and unable to fly. After treatment at Roo Gully it was released and was a regular visitor to our garden for many weeks.
Tawny Frogmouth owl
Talon

Another success!

Talon, a hawk, suffered a broken wing in a road accident, but recovered well enough to return to the wild a few months later.
Many hours were spent retraining it to hunt for its own food, and this is one bird that would have reaped enormous benefits from the flight rehabilitation avairy.

This Boobook owl was also a road accident victim. It suffered serious injuries to one femur and its pelvis.
Sadly the vets were unable to operate.
Boobook owl
Billy biter
'Billy Biter' is yet another road accident victim, suffering a serious fracture to one wing. Although our vets performed surgery, fractures near the shoulders almost never heal sufficiently for the bird to return to the wild.
Billy now lives at Roo Gully, with 3 other Black cockatoos, and it is hoped she will be a successful member of our Black cockatoo breeding programme.
Ludwig is a Western Rosella parrot. She has been in care since being found in a garden, too young to fly. Her feathers have now grown and she is in an aviary with another Western Rosella who is recovering from a broken wing.
It is hoped both these birds will be suitable for release.
Ludwig
