Today I am extremely exited and honoured as I  prepare to head south to Hobart then onto Melaleuca on Tuesday...to the only known breeding area of the critically endangered #orangebelliedparrot (perhaps the rarest parrot in the world!)
I will be helping to capture up to 14 previously released captive bred birds to bring back to the mainland. The decision is to attempt an assisted migration as many birds do not make it on their own. It is intended that (10 plus) females remain in a special facility at the #werribeeopenrangezoo over winter, while the (3 plus) males, joined by others from #healesvillesanctuary would be released at the #westerntreatmentplant hopefully at the time when the 3 wild birds (pictured) return and can show the ropes to the younger birds. Here's hoping all goes to plan!!

Shortly after taking this image I watched this amazing #australianhobby tease a magpie by whacking it on the head a few times, in flight, with its talons ...aparrently just for fun!! They are so incredibly fast and the magpie (normally a bully) just didn't stand a chance.
