A joint rescue effort with RSPCA Queensland and the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services has meant a safe and happy ending for an Australian native Babbler in Dayboro, Queensland.
The RSPCA received a call early on March 21 from a local homeowner who was hearing the noises of a trapped bird inside her wood stove chimney.
“I was just getting ready for the day this morning, and I heard a clatter in the chimney, and realised the bird had fallen in right down the chimney and was stuck,” the homeowner said.
“The bird was very distressed… I was getting distressed, and I didn’t know what to do. I called people who could… I called the RSPCA and now we’re here with a Grey Crowned Babbler.”
