SPECIES: Magpie Lark (juvenile fledgling)
RESCUE DETAILS: Rescued by K Gray, Kleinton
REHABILITATION DETAILS: Rehabilitation by Toowoomba Koala & Wildlife Rescue & Tiny Haven Wildlife Sanctuary
RELEASE DETAILS: TBA
This juvenile Magpie Lark (aka Pee Wee) was rescued by Kirra & Jasmine on New Years Day, after being found on a residential street, away from any trees or obvious places where the mud nest may have been, making reuniting impossible. It was still very small, and being out in the hot sun, on the bitumen road on its own, it wouldn’t have lasted long, so it was very lucky to be rescued!
It has adapted well in care and on weigh in today he is now 45 grams!!
Now that he is ‘out of the woods’ we hope to find another carer with similar sized birds that it could be raised and then released with eventually . In the mean time he is keeping us busy with its regular feeds.
Big thanks to Kaehla from Tiny Haven for accepting this little Magpie Lark to be raised & released with others she had in care.
