Rescuer discovers a 'little fluff ball' on the ground is alive
Cotton ball near a tree.
The onlooker was surprised to discover legs and a face on the ball.
He was a tawny frogmouth, not a cotton ball.
The Good Samaritan recognised the baby fell from a tree. The rescuer took the bird to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary after failing to find its family.
The rescuer couldn't find his parents or nest, so they brought him to the sanctuary, a spokesman said.
The shelter shared Pod's photos to Facebook, asking, "Can you identify this lovely fluff ball?"
Tawny frogmouths are native to Australia and Tasmania. Their huge heads, nocturnal activity, and brown colouring make them resemble owls.
