2014 09 09-12 TMNHA BIRD GROUP CAMP REPORT - Evans Head


Ever since Susan cajoled us into having a couple of birding “campout” expeditions a year, the Tamborine Bird Group has had a lot of fun – and the Evans Head trip was no exception.

As with all our trips, few of us actually camp any more so we have to look for places that offer other types of accommodation besides caravan and tent sites. Evans Head was ideal for this because it offers a range of well-priced units, beach houses and cabins as well as a campground and food outlets are all close-by.

2014 08 13 TMNHA BIRD WALK REPORT - Tamrookum


Eleven members met at the VIC at 7am on a very cold morning. After car-pooling, we drove to Beaudesert and took the turn-off to Rathdowny.

We pulled over to look at hundreds of Plumed Whistling-ducks crowded together over the banks of a farm dam which from a distance looked like a rock wall. The traffic noise on the highway was horrendous so we left and didn’t stop again until we reached Christmas Creek Road pulling over to check out some nesting Tree Martins in a huge eucalypt beside the road. Striped Honeyeaters and Striated Pardalotes were calling.

2014 07 09 TMNHA BIRD WALK REPORT - Nindooinbah

White necked Heron


Eleven members all enthusiastically left the mountain on a very cold winter’s morning bound for the first location of Flagstone Creek Road just off the main road to Beaudesert. Along this road are various dams and good tree and bush habitat.
Our first views were of a stunning male Scarlet Honeyeater feeding on Eucalypt flowers
together Lewin’s and Yellow-faced Honeyeaters and Noisy Friarbirds.

2014 04 09 TMNHA BIRD WALK REPORT - Burnett Creek to Lake Moogerah

2014 04 147 Pied Butcher Bird


After a brief and rather unproductive (one Mistletoebird!) at Waterfall Creek Road reserve we slowly birded along the road around the southern end of Lake Maroon, then followed beautiful Burnett Creek, picking up birds as we went. Pat was particularly thrilled by the sight of five Jacky Winters and Julie, as always, was happy to see her beloved black swans.

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.
