Customer Question

there is a teenaged wild kookaburra that keeps lunging at a glass wall that is reflecting his image the frequency of his attacks is increasing and the force of his blows makes a very big sound The location is Woollahra Golf Club on O'Sullivan Rd Rose Bay There are a few trees on the property and we think that his parents lived in the nearby trees but we haven't seen the mature birds for a few weeks We are very concerned that this bird will eventually kill itself if this keeps up Wires have come out to try n capture it and i have come with a fiend abig towel and a box to try to capture it We are rather scared of being injured by the strong beak and claws but we are desperate to help We have been told that if we manage to catch it and take it away for 3 -4 days to break the cycle we could release it back to this environment which unfortunately is the only one it knows can you help us help this poor little bird which is an iconic symbol of Australian fauna
