This Sacred ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus) came from Floroma Retirement Village. The lovely ladies living there take great interest in their resident wildlife and noticed that the ibis wasn't walking. He had a fractured bone in his leg which Dr K repaired by placing an external fixator.
Thanks to the concerned ladies at Floroma Retirement Village, this bird received a second chance at life. He made a full recovery and was released back at the retirement village.
