In search of Capricornia's rarest birds after Cyclone Marcia

During a cyclone many sea birds are caught up in the eye of the storm and are kept on the wing for hours and hours, ending up exhausted and far from home.

The strong winds also strip local trees of blossoms and food for some birds - as well as just falling over, so there are fewer places for birds to nest and shelter. Birdlife Capricornia have been out surveying the rarest of our local birds, the Capricorn Yellow Chat.
