male Variegated Fairy wrenThe weather was kind for our walk in Coombabah Wetlands; chilly to start, then warming up nicely and having had enough rain to lay the dust without making the tracks too wet.  We followed our usual route;  first the board walk, then the main track to the wetlands (where we saw hardly any birds) then up to the cut, along the banks and back down the sewer line to the car park.  
Bird numbers were not great at this time of year but we were able to watch a pair of Kookaburras taking it in turns to bash a larger hole in an termites’ nest, preparatory to doing their own nesting.  Some of us also got a very good, close look at a White-necked Heron stalking purposefully through the grass and apparently unworried by us watching him.

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.
