Rose Robin


It was ‘The Day of the Pink Robin’ for those members of the Tamborine NHA Bird Group who set off on May 11 for the Lower Beechmont Reserve. The sky was determinedly overcast but this didn’t dampen the spirits of our merry group of ten, led by Julie. When we got to Clagiraba Creek at 7 am the birds were only just waking up but by the time we parked at the entrance to the reserve there was plenty of action to keep our binoculars busy. Pink Robins (male and female) were sighted not far from the gate on the same ridge where we saw them a couple of years ago. And after that there were Pink Robins everywhere!

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.
