2021 10 13 Scarlet HoneyeaterOur October Bird Walk was attended by 8 members and one visitor. The main walk for the day was to the Lower Beechmont Conservation Area at Clagiraba followed by morning tea/lunch near the Hinze Dam. Some of us continued on to Beechmont to bird along South West Road. We had a final stop at Sharp Park, Canungra. The intermittent drizzling rain didn’t matter, as the cheerful mood and excitement of the group made for a wonderful day out.

2020 BIRDWALK REPORT Moreton Bay Wader Walk - 11th March 2020

Bar-tailed GodwitsNine members attended our wader day out led by Pat, our wader expert. Report photos Gail. It was an early start, meeting at the VIC at 6am and then travelling to the Port of Brisbane. On arrival we saw a few birds including the lovely Double-barred Finch, but no waders so we moved on to the Wynnum Esplanade. A large group of waders was madly feeding in the mud in and around a rocky outcrop; mostly Bar-tailed Godwits, some in their beautiful chestnut-coloured breeding plumage, Grey-tailed Tattlers and Great Knots. Several Pied Oystercatchers were feeding amongst the waders and calling.

We drove down half way; could already hear two Albert Lyrebirds and saw loads of yellow-faced Honeyeaters.... We drove to the end to enjoy the strong calls of the very close Albert Lyrebird.

2016 07 13 TMNHA BIRDWALK REPORT

Babblers


The July 2016 expedition turned out to be surprisingly fruitful, bearing in mind this is usually the worst birding month of the year in terms of species and we covered only the small area from Beaudesert to what is now called Wyaralong. We got a very creditable count of 83 species which was a lot more than most of us had expected. Our focus was on Old Beaudesert Road and the area just east of it around the top end of Lake Wyaralong, though we included all birds seen along the Beaudesert-Boonah Road.

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.
