One of CWCN's younger rehabilitation sites, the vicinity to Mount Coot-tha (despite interruptions through the Western Freeway) allows for medium to larger birds to move back and forth. Smaller birds have the advantage of connected green space West of the Freeway. Has the rehabilitation succeeded just yet in protecting small native birds from domestic animals and foxes? Come and find out!
