This young blue winged kookaburra was handed into Parap Vet hospital after being found by a member of the public sitting on a bull bar of a car. The vets assessed it and was found to be quiet and underweight but had no obvious injuries. It was taken into care and had to be force fed for a couple of days. Over the period of a week the kookaburra became more and more bright and began feeding on its own. It was then moved to a larger aviary and after a couple of days begun demonstrating its flight strength. It was then moved to a larger flight aviary for a couple of days of flight time and then was released back into bushland only 500 meters from where it was found.
