2008 Feb-Mar Reports on Bird Group Meetings

THNHA March Bird Meeting
Ivor is well on the mend after his hip operation and should be back in action after 4 to 6 weeks recuperation. His stay in hospital did not stop him from observing the local birds, female Koel and Grey Butcherbird to name a few. Another welcome site was to have Harry along to the meeting.  He is participating in activities already and is looking great.

The Weather was WET, with moderate to heavy rain all morning.

However the ground birds were still feeding and we observed Logrunners, Basian Thrushes, Large- billed, White Browed and Yellow-throated Scrubwrens. A Tree creeper was heard calling and a Brown Cuckoo Dove flew over. Feeding in crevices in the canopy were Paradise Riflebirds, and the flashes of yellow were Eastern Yellow robins and Golden Whistlers.

The weather was warm and sunny with a slight breeze. Whilst walking around the dam, it was surprising how few water birds either numbers or species were seen, but we did observe Pacific Black and Plumed Whistling Duck, Australian Grebes, Dusky Moorhen and Purple Swamp hens.

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.
