This fledgling galah 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 has now gone to a wildlife aviary to be with other fledgling orphaned Galahs.
The aim is to eventually release him back into the wild.
