When I was doing the homework on what we had, I did read that they were a protected species - and never thought to question it.

Our one is pretty safe, will likely go to some wildlife park or haven when it gets old enough - or it might choose to bugger off as I also read that the urge to migrate and mate is fairly strong with these birds.

I don't recall having seen one of these chappies out here, not a male anyway - and I've been here a while now.

Cheers MD - and I probably got a bit loose with that last post despite it being true - apart from the roasting dish, that is.

Oh - and whacking the neighbours kids $2 for the privilege of giving it a name - missus got shitty with that one.

I did think 53cm was a tad on the large size....a full grown spoonie weighs not much more than a pound when soaking wet.
