This fledgling galah named Sid was rescued from a palm tree when it blew down in the wind.

Palm trees have become a popular alternative for nesting sites due to a lack of old trees with hollows. Unfortunately if too many hollows are excavated, the trunk becomes unstable. 


Due to a fractured leg, Sid was not able to be reunited with its family, but his 2 other siblings were successfully relocated to a nest box in the tree next to the felled one.  They have since fledged.


Sid was hand raised and then went to a wildlife aviary to be with other fledgling orphaned Galahs.  

Him and his friends were all successfully released.
