Wedge-tailed Eagle

Wedge-tailed Eagle passed away

This very old wedge-tailed eagle that came into care from the northern end of FAWNA’s district.

Sadly it died safely and gently two days ago. A beautiful bird – very old bird.

Our carer went up early to the aviary to check on the old fella and found it lying on its favourite tree root, looking very peaceful.

Newsflash – Baby flying foxes off to creche at the end of the month.

All the carers are taking the babies they have been loving and caring for to, meet their relatives and learn to be big kids now.

We all love and will miss them but rejoice in their new freedoms.

This is Bonny Barbie a Grey Headed Flying Fox, caught in high tensile barbed wire in the Urban Area of Bonny Hills, South of Port Macquarie.

Her entanglement was so severe that the wire had to be cut on site ,and the Flying Fox transported to the vet with wire still attached to her wings.

Thanks to the immediate action of Sarah and Bill at Oxley Highway Vets for responding to her plight, she was gassed and the barbed wire removed.

Bonny Barbie is a lactating female which means that she has a pup somewhere in the camp on its own, which will die.

Her survival as a threatened species is vital, but it will be a long road to recovery as her injuries were severe.
