Rehab is proving successful for an unnamed morepork, finding its feet after sustaining a concussion.
The morepork, believed to be a female, was found in the backyard of a central New Plymouth home in late August, Brooklands Zoo assistant curator Eve Cozzi said.
After being treated by the New Plymouth Vet Group, the morepork was taken in by zoo staff for rehabilitation and eventual release back into the wild, Cozzi said. "It's more than likely she was hit by a car, or possibly, flew into a window or building."
Zoo staff posted a video to their Facebook page on Friday, showing their night time monitoring of the Morepork's feeding and flight activity.
"She's recovering really well, making definite progress," Cozzi said.
