May2010 161s  

LOST WORLD & DUCK CREEK ROAD

The June Birdwalk (or was it a Bird-drive?) turned out to be a terrific day. After a miserable week the weather Gods smiled on us with just the most perfect day imaginable. Nine of us left in four cars from Doughty Pk at 7.05 am. First major stop was the large man-made dam on the Kerry Road a few kilometres out of Beaudesert.

2009 07 18 TMNHA Bird Walk Report - Noorindibar, Beaudesert, Christmas Ck

On the way to Nooindibar we stopped to watch a pair of Wedgetail Eagles enjoy a Galah for breakfast and it was warm and sunny by the time we started our walk around the lake. Waterbirds were low in numbers; however we had lovely views of Forest Kingfisher and Juvenile Jacanas, a total of over 70 Plumed Whistling Ducks as well as Pacific Blacks, Grey Teal, Dusky Moorhens and Purple Swamphens.

Great_Egret 

EAGLEBY WETLANDS
Saturday started a bright sunny morning with an autumnal nip in the air as we started our walk around the Eagleby Wetlands, but with all the beautiful Melaleuca trees in full flower attracting all the nectar eating birds we were to absorbed to worry about the temperature.

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.
