Wild, but urbanised and traffic smart. Appears this young Sacred Ibis fell from it's nest or took a premature flight attempt and now living in the garden within a traffic Island on very busy King Georges road in Beverly Hills Sydney.

I feel sorry for the poor ibis. Isn't there a wildlife organization that can move it to a safer place? RSPCA or other?

I think it will be OK Lyn. In the third pic you can just make out the nest in the tree far left. Parents are feeding it (as per second pic) and I think the fact it has survived this long (road next to the island and plants in it are very whitewashed) means it truly is traffic smart.

I was watching it for 15-20 minutes and it was moving about on that traffic island for the whole time, fed twice by mum or dad during that time before finally sitting down and resting in the final pic.

Either parents have taught it or it's intelligent enough to have worked out itself the danger of traffic.
