Bird native to Australia seen in Erode village







A black headed Ibis, believed to have originated in Australia, was found running around Kattupalayam, a small village in Erode district on Tuesday. Villagers flocked to the veterinary hospital in Modakurichi to see the bird before it was handed over to the Vellode bird sanctuary. As part of its annual route, the bird might have migrated to India but lost its way and was unable to fly back home due to sustained back injury. On Tuesday evening, a farmer in kattupalayam heard the anguished cries of a bird only to see dogs chasing an injured bird.
