Dead bird in Air Saneh, north coast

Apparently the bird suppliers go into the forests of Indonesia and take fledglings from the nest, and then rear them. They were selling for 50,000 Rp and upwards. 300,000 Rp (A$40) would have bought an owl without any bargaining. Wayan said many birds die within a few months, though he seemed to suggest that this was by virtue of their purchasers' indifference to their need for daily water.
