2014 03 12 TMNHA WADER REPORT

Red-necked Avocet

 

 Port of Brisbane, Lytton Roost, Moreton Bay, Wynnum, Manly, Thorneside, Birkdale, Wellington Point and two new areas, Sandy Camp Rd and Kanawah Road .....

On our bird outing this month we were going to concentrate on the migrating species.   The weather would be hard to beat sunny, dry and with a slight off shore breeze, and our small group saw plenty of birds to occupy the day. We started at the Port of Brisbane with small flocks of Red-necked Stints, Sharp-tailed Sandpipers, Greenshank, Eastern Curlew, and Curlew Sandpiper all busily feeding on the outgoing tide.

2014 02 12 TMNHA BIRD WALK REPORT - Beechmont_Canungra area

DN3936s Rose-crowned Fruit DoveOur first Bird Walk for 2014…..the morning was fine and mild, the birdos were eager and it was just a short drive to our first birding stop, a good combination to start off a great day of birding.    South West Road at Beechmont was our first stop which proved to be the most productive of the day with 49 species recorded along it’s 6 kilometres (compared to 28 species in March 2013).

2013 10 16 TMNHA BIRD WALK REPORT - Fleays to Hinterland

2013 10 133 Collared KingfisherAn early start meant we were enjoying the calls of the kingfishers by 7:30am as we walked through the car park at Fleay’s. It’s a great place to see and hear the Mangrove, Collared and Sacred Kingfishers, especially at this time of year when they are breeding. We had great sightings of all species further along the boardwalk. Their calls helped us locate them and their nests.

2013 11 20 TMNHA BIRD WALK REPORT - ORiellys

2013 11 138 Grey GoshhawkWe started our walk at the O’Reilly’s car park. White-throated Needletails were swooping and diving overhead and along the road the birdsong of Golden Whistlers, Black-faced Monachs, Green Catbirds and Brown Gerygones was ever present. 19 species were recorded by the time we reached the Moran’s Falls entrance.   The rainforest was looking beautiful with mossy rocks and tree trunks and small orange fungi everywhere. Noisy Pittas called often but unfortunately no sightings. And no sightings either of Riflebirds but they were heard. (Python Rock Track was still closed!)

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.
