Welcome to the forum Lorges728.

Firstly glad that you have it safe from cats.
Stone Curlew are beach side or water birds.
Careful in handling this bird. They are eco to mangrove and beachside usually range from Australia Malaysia Indonesia to the Philippine. We to have Stone Curlew over in U.K.

"The Beach Stone-curlew is classified as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species"

If hurt or sick bring it to the vet. Or if a young bird and well bring it way from harm and release it back to beach mangrove or near waterfront close to your area after it gets look after. Try putting up a photo so that others can view it. They eat tiny sheelfish, crab or seafood.

They are easily stress out and could go into cardiac arrest and died. Put a cloth slight over the cage to calm it down.
If a baby they need warm place although I know in Malaysia is hot country. Update us more on this topic.

Do you live near coaster line or possible near mangrove area. This species don't wonder far from waterline. Unless it's a captive breed that escape. Hope there is a ring on leg that tell. Ore of a story. They need shallow water too.
Quality is always better than quantity.
Don't crack under pressure.
