Bird walk Saturday 19th July 2008

The July walk was to Witches Falls and although cold it was dry and sunny. By 7 am the Albert's Lyrebirds were calling and didn't stop until after 9.30. We think that we positivly identified 4 different birds calling. We had some good views of Log-runners, White-browed and large- billed Scrub wrens in addition to Striated Pardalotes and Golden Whistlers. The small Brown Thornbills were extremly vocal this morning and we were pleased to be able to see quite a few of them.



The Morton Bay Fig trees are now quite full of figs which, although not quite ripe, were providing a small flock of Figbirds a good meal and at the same time we heard a Woopoo Pigeon calling its distictinctive sound.


After walking around Witches Falls we decided to make a quick call in at Palm Grove and although we saw very much the same species of birds we were very pleased to have splendid views of two Catbirds which were both calling


As always a good bird watching day

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
