User's notes

including one with a yellow plastic bag on it's beak, was reported to ACT Wildlife but it flew off shortly afterwards and they were updated. There is another Aust Darter that has been seen at Commonwealth Park with a white plastic bag on it's beak. If you see either of them please notify ACT Wildlife, hopefully one day they may be able to help them, but it is difficult if they keep flying off. We really appreciate the efforts of the ACT Wildlife volunteers. Thank you.
