Ship Assisted Vagrant *MEGA*

I had a call from one of the local shipping agency’s the other day to say that there was a bird on one of their cruise ships that was heading to the Falkland Islands.


It had flown into the superstructure and had been picked up by a passenger and taken to the ships Doctor where they cared for it and put it into a made up cage.


Well today the Star Princess turned up with its feathered passenger and it turned out to be a Ringed Warbling – Finch Poospiza torquata it remained on the vessel and will be released at the next port which is Ushuaia, a long way out of its range but a better option than releasing it in the Falkland Islands

A new birds for me but unfortunately not countable!!
