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.



Under the eaves of a building near the dam an old nest of a Fairy Martin had been taken over by a pair of Striated Pardalotes, and further along the track we saw male Rufous Whistler, Golden Whistler whilst Brown, Yellow and Scarlet Honeyeaters were busy feeding on the flowering gums.

Next we drove to Beaudesert race course where we picked up the usual score of waterbirds, but additionally Hardhead, Grey Teal, Little Black Cormorant, Darter, Intermediate Egret, and Australian Grebes.


After lunch we went to the lovely Christmas Creek observing Nankeen Kestrel, Black Shouldered Kite a striking Eastern Yellow Robin with a background of calling Bellbirds. From there our last call was to Lost World and views of Mount Widgee and the old homestead of Bernard O’Reilly.


Bird of the day was a beautiful male Rose Robin at Nooindibar.

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.
