Serendipity

The Ragtag Tuesday prompt: Serendipity

I have been in the right place at the right time with my camera a couple of times.
This instance, it was late afternoon and I was looking for a good place to watch the sunset at my besties old place. I looked up and there was a Regent Bowerbird unmistakable with its vivid colours. A managed a couple of quick photos before it flew off back into the rainforest. Disappointed with the quality of the photo but elated never-the-less.

This bit of serendipity was one of extreme joy. The right place and right time was sitting on my verandah having a cup of coffee. There in the Tea Tree sat a bird that is Critically Endangered, a Regent Honeyeater. The estimated know population is between 800 and 2000 birds. I was so happy to see this young male at my place for a few minutes

    1. I have room for those who would like to do environmental surveys. I haven’t the expertise or ability to do a comprehensive survey of my place. I am sure a PHD student could get a great mark 🙂

      1. My son is still doing his undergraduate degree. He is not going to do further study. He has a learning difficulty and book work is not his thing. But put him in the field and he is a different kid. He could do a survey, Brian. I’ll send you an email with a link to an ABC interview that he did with a couple of other conservationists.
