TMNHA Bird Walk 21st March 2009 - Clagirabar Conservation Park

Clagiraba Conservation Reserves stretch from Lower Beechmont plateau to Mt Nathan. The reserves provide a habitat linkage between the Hinze Dam catchment to the south, the Tamborine Plateau to the north-west and the vast tracts of Canungra forest through to Nerang State Forest to the north-west.

Our walk was through the section at Bellis Road, Clagiraba. The fine weather and variety of habitats provided a good bird list, 42 species. A male Cicadabird was definitely the bird of the day. A good sighting up close was a real treat as Cicadabirds are more often heard than seen.

Pacific Black Duck, Australian Wood Duck, Laughing Kookaburra, Common Bronzewing, Rufous Fantail, Grey Fantail, White-browed Scrubwren, Black-faced Monach, Cicadabird, Rufous Whistler, Leaden Flycatcher, Whiter-throated Gerygone, Eastern Whipbird, Striated Pardalote, Lewin’s Honeyeater, Bar-shouldered Dove, Brown Thornbill, Golden Whistler, Eastern Yellow Robin, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Scarlet Honeyeater, Galah, Crimson Rosella, Brown Pigeon, Silvereye, White-throated Honeyeater, Spotted Pardalote, Mistletoebird, Grey Shrike-thrush, White-throated Treecreeper, Wedge-tailed Eagle, Australian King Parrot, Little Shrike-thrush, Spectacled Monach, Shining Bronze-Cuckoo, Masked Lapwing, Australasian Grebe, Australian Magpie, Willie Wagtail, Torresian Crow, Magpie-lark

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.
