This is September: The birds

G’day,
September, the first month of Spring but still no rain. The last drop of rain I have had was 6mls on the 6th July. Good news is there was 21mls over the last weekend. The dry Winter and September didn’t  stop the Grevillieas from flowering. I didn’t include many Grevilleas in this or the next blog. You can see them here from a previous blog. But I digress. This part of This is September is just the birds. The next blog is everything else as I looked at the number of photos and there are too many for one blog. I didn’t want your cuppa to get cold scrolling through or fall asleep before the end.

Ready……..lets get going.

The first lot are birds who are not very good at hiding, although some were just sheltering from the heat of the day probably.

The Australian Raven gave the game away by incessantly calling.

The Noisy Friarbird was in the Sweet Pittosporum
noisy friarbird_hiding_named_home_sept 2017

The Little Friarbird was hiding behind the Mago
little friarbird_looking_named_home_sept 2017

The Striated Thornbill was hiding in the Hibiscus
striated thornbill_named_binna burra_sept 2017

Can you spot the White-throated Treecreeper?
white throated tree creeper_hiding_named_home_sept 2017

The Figbird was trying to be inconspicuous
fig bird_named_home_sept 2017

Little Friarbirds don’t hide very well do they?
little friarbird_hiding_named_home_sept 2017

I love seeing the Variegated Fairy Wrens hopping through the garden. They usually come in small flocks looking among the bushes and flowers for insects or heading to the birdbath.
The females are hard to see aren’t they?
variegated fairy wren_female_named_binna burra_sept 2017

Whereas the males really stand out
variegated fairy wren_males_named_binna burra_sept 2017

They are so cute when they sit together
variegated fairy wren_male_female_named_binna burra_sept 2017

As the weather has been very warm, almost Summer temperatures, the bird bath was the place to be. The Little Friarbird came for a drink.
little friarbird_birdbath01_named_home_sept 2017

Bottoms up
little friarbird_drinking_birdbath_named_home_sept 2017

Looking about before having another drink
little friarbird_birdbath_named_home_sept 2017

A Spangled Drongo seemed to have a gargle
spangled drongo_birdbath_named_home_sept 2017

While a White-throated Treecreeper jumped in and splashed about
white throated treecreeper_birdbath_splash_named_home-sept 2017

Sometimes you can emerge from the birdbath looking a bit bedraggled like this White-throated Honeyeater
white throated honeyeater_birdbath_named_home_sept 2017

Eastern Whipbirds love the birdbath
whipbird01_in birdbath_named_binna burra_sept 2017

Almost ready for another dip
whipbird02_birdbath_named_binna burra_sept 2017

Lewins Honeyeaters like the mosaics of this birdbath
lewins honeyeater_named_binna burra_sept 2017
Of course there are birds who live in the water. Darters enjoy a swim
darter_named_grafton_sept 2017
While other birds prefer to be in the trees. Blue-faced Honeyeaters enjoy lunch
blue faced honeyeater_named_home_sept 2017

Figbirds wonder what other birds are doing
figbird_looking_named_home_sept 2017

Yellow-faced Honeyeaters like sitting on sticks
yellow faced honeyeater_named_home_sept 2017

A regular Spring visitor is the Rufous Whistler who sing their little hearts out during the day
rufous whistler_named_home_sept 2017

The Square-tailed Kites have come back to their nest from last year to raise more chicks
square tailed kite_nest_named_home_sept 2017

Other birds don’t mind a stroll about. A Grey-shrike Thrush hopped about the leaf litter

On their regular patrol around the garden, the Wonga Pigeons stopped for a drink.
wongas_named_binna burra_sept 2017

A Common Bronzewing takes a walk along the road

I like the first signs of Spring when the Rufous Whistler and the Spangled Drongos arrive at my place. Did you have a favourite bird?

 

Black and White Sunday: Structure

This photo challenge from Lost in Translation, Structure, has made me think of the structures that I like to discover and photograph. Of course I don’t mean man made structures but the wonderful structures in nature.

Look how the Spangled Drongo has attached the nest to the trees branches in a very loose looking structure.
170816_bandw challenge_structure_drongo nest1

It is just right for the Spangled Drongo to sit among the eucalypt leaves.
170816_bandw challenge_structure_drongo nest

The Noisy Friarbirds nest is a jumble of strips of Stringybark trees woven into a basket like structure with a side opening
170816_bandw challenge_structure_friarbird nest

The most basic of nests has to be the Tawny Frogmouth. The nests structure is a pile of sticks in the fork of the tree. Shhh, don’t disturb the nocturnal Frogmouth.
170816_bandw challenge_structure_frogmouth nest

Another jumble of sticks makes the structure of the Square-tailed Kites nest. There is a pile of sticks under the nest which didn’t sit properly and fell to the ground.
170816_bandw challenge_structure_kite nest

The Ospreys huge nest on an open branch where they can see all around. The nests structure of sticks, moss and a huge amount of Grandfathers Beard.
170816_bandw challenge_structure_osprey nest

What nest wouldn’t be a nest without some babies!!! The cup like structure of the Grey Fantails nest is built onto the branch using spiders web to help make it stick.

Things made of wood

A great photo challenge from Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Made of Wood

So many things made of wood to choose from. Here is just a few

The hand made wooden pier at a friends place

December’s Discoveries

So much to do in the next few days. I wanted to get a little bit of my world out there for you to enjoy. I looked at some of the photos and there are some that are recurring from years gone by. I guess that’s what happens in nature. The cycles just keep rolling on. I wonder if you can spot the photos subjects that have appeared before. All of the flower and insect photos are from my besties fantastic garden. I love wandering around her garden discovering flowers and insects.

I took many photos of this tree as the textures and lines are so good. It was so hard to settle on one photo.

tree bark textures_binna burra_named_ dec 2015

The air ferns are increasing in the bush and around the garden. They are so primitive looking don’t you think?

air fern01_home_named_dec 2015

The way the moss just cascades over the old tree trunk, filling crevices giving life to the dead wood of a large tree from the past.

moss_binna burra_named_dec 2015

The water vine grew in the fork of the tree long ago and now it looks like the tree has an appendage. The vine is still alive reaching up into the canopy.

tree_vine_binna burra_named_dec 2015

The flowers of the Silk Tree aren’t around for long. The birds sure make a mess of the flowers when they come to gather the bit of pollen or nectar the flowers supply.

silk flower_binna burra_named_dec 2015

This hibiscus flower grows high in the tree and sends the occasional flower to hang down adding a splash of red to the garden.

hybiscus02_binna burra_named_dec 2015

The little balls laden with pollen usually have native bees buzzing around except when I was taking photos.

hybiscus01_binna burra_named_dec 2015

The delicate blue centres of the white hydrangea are quite stunning when you get close to the large white flower ball.

white hydrangea01_binna burra_named_dec 2015

These tiny daisies are popping up all through the garden. They are about 10mm in diameter.

daisy_binna burra_named_dec 2015

I love the Cats Whiskers with their purple tips.

cats whiskers01_binna burra_dec 2015

I am not sure what this orange flower is called but it makes a bold statement in the garden’s borders.

yellow flower_binna burra_named_dec 2015

Flowers aren’t just to be seen in the garden, they are also a source of joy in the house or even in the lady shed.

flower arrangement_binna burra_named_dec 2015

I can’t find my spider book so I can’t let you know the names of these spiders. This little one is quite small but very fast.

spider01_binna burra_named_dec 2015

Another tiny spider who sat still for a photo or two then decided that enough was enough and jumped onto the camera.

spider01_home_named_dec 2015

When we were fixing up the studio I came across a few insects, mainly black ants by the thousands, but this long skinny spider was staying where he was, pretending to be a stick I guess.

spider_binna burra_named_dec 2015

There have been lots of dragonflies flitting around my besties garden and mine as well. There have been blue and large red dragonflies at my place, whereas there appears to be a lot of these orange/yellow ones at her place. This one was happily flying around the rainforest near the creek.

dragonfly01_binna burra_named_dec 2015

This dragonfly is one of the bigger dragonflies in the rainforest.

dragonfly02_binna burra_named_dec 2015

Back at my place I have been keeping an eye on the Friarbirds nest.

friarbird nest01_home_named_dec 2015

I think the female or juvenile Satin Bowerbird spotted me as I was staking out the bird bath.

bower bird_home_named_dec 2015

The tiny Thornbill didn’t seem to care as it contemplated taking a plunge into the water.

thornbill_home_named_dec 2015

As usual the garden has its resident Easter Yellow Robin. I love the way they seem to enjoy landing on vertical things.

yellow robin_banana_home_named_dec 2015

We went to Broken Head for the afternoon. There are always White-bellied Sea Eagles soaring on the currents around the headland.

white bellied sea eagle_broken head_named_dec 2015

It was a surprise to see the Sooty Oystercatcher strolling around the beach. It looked a bit tired so maybe it was the first landing on its migration?

sooty oystercatcher_broken head_named_dec 2015

The little bit of rain I have had has certainly sent the frogs into a cacophony of a night. I think these tadpoles may be Bleating Tree Frogs as I hear them around the pool.

tadpole_home_named_dec 2015

I think the one on the right may enjoy getting its pictue taken.

tadpole01_home_named_dec 2015

That’s all for the time being so if I don’t get to post another blog soon, have a great Christmas. Remember to look after our nature because it’s the only one we have.

As I wander about

It’s been ages since I have had time to get things sorted, to take time for things and actually sit down to set out to write a bit. I have been taking photos of all manner of stuff – as you will see. It is difficult to have a clear pathway of thoughts, to put ideas down and try to make sense so that you can follow where I have been and what I have seen. Many a time I just take off to see what I can discover and see something that I find interesting, colourful or part of our world that some people would just walk by everyday and not think of the beauty. Perhaps I look at the world in a different way, to imagine in my head what I see, grab my camera and let the lens take me where I think it should go. Enough of a jumble of thoughts – as The Beatles sang

“Thoughts meander like a restless wind
Inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe”

So lets go across the universe or through a small part of my world. Starting at the beginning. Early one misty morning, some rogue cattle were walking along the road when we was taking a walk.

cattle_duroux rd_named_august 2015

Further down the road, the spiders webs were all through patches of grass. Small cup shaped webs dotted the side of the road in their hundreds.

spider webs_purgatory ck rd_named_august 2015

As it is still rather cool here I am still out in the bush every couple of weeks to cut some firewood. One morning I noticed the White-winged Choughs doing their daily march along the clearing with their incessent chatter as they kicked over sticks and rocks looking for their breakfast. They had an almost straight line as they marched up the hill.

white winged choughs_named_home_sept 2015

Sometimes you can look up and see a Spangled Drongo fly past the moon, even in the late afternoon.

spangled drongo_moon_binna burra_july 2015

I though the Bellwood Cormorant Hotel was rather fab but the double decker Osprey nest near Chinderah has a far better vantage point.

osprey nest_named_chindara_august 2015

While we were having lunch in the Tweed Heads industrial/shopping complex, we watched as a bird swooped across the car park, grab what we think was a lizard and go back to the roof top and eat away. After I took the photo (OK I took heaps of photos), I discovered it was an Australian or Nankeen Kestral. What a pretty bird don’t you think?

nankeen kesral_named_tweed heads_august 2015

Speaking of pretty, the Emerald Doves are out and about in numbers at the moment. This bird was not all that content having me stalk it to try and get a good photo.

emerald dove_named_binna burra_august 2015

It stuck its bum in the air as if to say “Go on….take a photo of my best side!!!”

emerald dove_rear_named_binna burra_august 2015

This little bird was sitting in the tree singing its little lungs out.

honeyeater_banora_named_august 2015

Having a cuppa on the verandah one morning, one of the local King Parrots decided to pop over and see if we had any snacks.

king parrot_named_home_august 2015

The Bar-shouldered Dove didn’t seem to mind the Brush Turkeys leaf raking exercise. The turkey was flicking leaves so high into the air! The turkey’s litter mound is about 5 meters away from where it was methodically raking leaves.

bar shouldered dove_brush turkey_named_binna burra_august 2015

One morning I found a Rainbow Lorikeet sitting on the ladder in the old swimming pool looking rather grumpy.

rainbow lorikeet_named_home_july 2015

OK….now this is where things take a different direction for a while. One day we decided to walk across the Clarence River on the walkway under the Grafton Bridge. The structure has been graffitied over the years and the layers of paint with a bit of rust made lovely colours and patterns.

rust01_grafton bridge_named_august 2015

I like the rust colours.

rust02_grafton bridge_named_august 2015

This green almost looked like moss.

rust03_grafton bridge_named_august 2015

One of the hundred of thousand rivets holding te bridge together. Small but significent.

rust04_grafton bridge_named_august 2015

The walkway along the bridge also had two tunnels at either end which have always been “decorated”. Sometimes some of the graffiti has to be added to doesn’t it?

graffiti_grafton_named_august 2015

Othertimes the message is what everyone needs to hear.

graffiti_named_grafton_august 2015

One of my favourite cafes in Grafton is the Tilted Teaspoon. Skye has a wonderful sense of decoration with ever changing bits and pieces gleaned from Op-Shops and garage sales.

old case_named_grafton_august 2015

The water below the bridge has shapes that change as the water ripples from passing water craft. This one is rather spooky.

ghost face_named_grafton_august 2015

Speaking of spooky, what is the blue flash that appeared in my besties loungeroom?

ghost room_named_august 2015

I love the “eye lashes” on the bullet hole in the road sign.

bullet hole sign_purgatory ck rd_named_august 2015

Enough of the different stuff and back to colour and nature. The red flower of the eucalypt just seems to burst in a riot of colour.

red flower_named_grafton_august 2015

One of the first flowers that I started to photograph many years ago were the Azalias of the next door neighbours. They had so many varieties that cascaded over the front suburban fence. The colours were superb. My besties Azalias have been a wonderful splash of colour around her garden. The deep pink flowers are lovely. One of the surprises when taking photos is the unexpected bits that are in and around the flowers.

azalia_dark pink_named_binna burra_august 2015

This flower was hidden inside the same bush as the pink one above.

azalia_pink_named_binna burra_august 2015

The red Azalias are such a stand out in the garden.

azalia_red_named_binna burra_august 2015

The Irises are dotted through the garden not being showy but adding a bit to the shape and form in the garden. It also is the home for a small spider.

iris_named_binna burra_august 2015

The lillies come in a range of colours. I love these ones.

flower_named_binna burra_august 2015

The yellow Day Lilies bring that end of the spectrum to the garden as they stand tall in the sunshine.

day lily_named_binna burra_august 2015

The undersides are just as impressive.

day lily01_named_binna burra_august 2015

The Nastursiums are just starting to appear. I love their colours and shapes as the sit low in the garden trailing over rocks, logs and borders.

nastursium_named_binna burra_august 2015

The Pentas are wonderful as so many little flowers gather together in a ball of colour.

pentas_pink_named_binna burra_august 2015

These flowers like to look at what is going on at ground level. The little bells cluster together.

flower02_named_binna burra_august 2015

This is such a tight ball of very small flowers that have such a lovely scent as you brush past.

flower01_named_binna burra_august 2015

The orchids are out now as well. Again, this flower is so small as it spikes out from the plant with it’s almost see through petals.

orchid_named_binna burra_august 2015

Walking about, it is always good to look up. The shapes colours and forms of the Foam Bark leaves are great.

foam bark leaves_named_binna burra_august 2015

A good discovery walk wouldn’t be complete without a fungi find. I have never seen a pink fungi before, have you?

fungus_pink_named_binna burra_august 2015

The fire has been lit, giving its colours that always surprise.

fire03_named_binna burra_august 2015

Or the swirling shapes where you can see so many different things. What can you see?

fire02_named_binna burra_august 2015

Looking deep inside the fire.

fire01_named_binna burra_august 2015

The Moon was smiling that night. A glowing grin in the sky.

moon_named_august 2015

Well it’s time to sweep and tidy up before I get going. See you next time OK

“Limitless undying love
Which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe”

Last day of Spring

It’s the last day of Spring. It has been a Spring of change. Days of hot and dry. Days where some rain has fallen, just a few drops and others where there has been a bit of run-off to add a bit of water to the dams. The early Spring blogs have been full of new life. A lot of things have happened and I have seen lots of new things around here and when out and about. Here is my last day of Spring. Hope you had a great Spring too.

Some days it was great just to lie down and relax.

pig01_nymboida_named_nov 2014

I just love it when I find something new, like this butterfly, an Australian Gull I think.

butterfly_nymboida_named_nov 2014

Another view of the butterfly that had me captivated as it flitted about the flowers on the dam,

butterfly01_nymboida_named_nov 2014

The drink container made the perfect background for a spider photo. I took me about three goes to get the photo as it kept jumping onto the camera. It is so tiny.

jumping spider_nymboida_named_nov 2014

Another new bug to get my attention was this Bee Fly.

bee fly_home_named_cropped_nov 2014

Even in the heat of the day, dragonflies were buzzing around the garden, occasionally taking time for a breather, even if it is right on top of a Grevillea.

dragonfly_home_named_nov 2014

I couldn’t go past this waterlily with its subtle shade of pink.

water lily_nymboida_named_nov 2014

There has been a couple of Spangled Drongo’s hanging around at the moment. This bloke had just dropped in for a splash in the bird bath.

spangled  drongo01_named_home_nov 2014

He always waited for the Rainbow Lorikeets to finish so he wouldn’t be nagged by them.

spangled drongo_home_named_nov 2014

“I wonder what those lorikeets have been doing in here?”

spangled  drongo_named_home_nov 2014

They have a nest in a rather open part of a Spotted Gum near the house. They certainly know how to tie a nest onto a branch even if the nest is a bit scrappy looking.

spangled drongo01_home_named_nov 2014

Remember the photos of the Fantail nest and the young. Here is the surviving baby following the parents around the place.

fantail_binna burra_named_nov 2014

It has been a good year for the wallabies. Many of the females have a joey in the pouch. This one was just outside the kitchen this morning.

wallaby_joey_home_named_nov 2014

Well Spring has gone and now to have my Summer adventures.

Little birds and flowers

What have I found over the past couple of weeks? The rooster has been doing what roosters do and the hen has been doing what hens do – sometimes. Yes, the Big Red Rooster (remember him) and the hens have produced a small but cute batch of chicks. The Fantail eggs (from the last blog) have hatched and two little chicks are doing well. But first, I have found some beautiful flowers.

This flower I have since found out can be rather weedy in its habit. The red and green together really caught my eye.

weed flower_binna burra_named_nov 2014

The Pelargoniums are flowering with their unusual petals and lovely colours.

pelagonium_binna burra_named_nov 2014

Orange flowers stand out and this one was trying to attract insects.

orange flower_binna burra_named_nov 2014

The yellow colours around the garden add a splash among the greenery.

yellow flower_binna burra_named_nov 2014

But the reds are very striking and this flower is most unusual.

red flower_binna burra_named_nov 2014

The Lewins Honeyeaters are always zooming around the garden making sure that everyone behaves or sitting and watching.

lewins honeyeater_binna burra_named_nov 2014

The White-browed Scrub Wrens are always foraging among the leaf litter in the garden. They look quite small when they pop up onto the deck.

scrub wren_named_binna burra_nov 2014

The chickens hatched out a week ago. I came home to the sounds of a very proud hen cluck clucking ready to show me how clever she was hatching out these little fluff balls.

chickens01_hen_named_home_nov 2014

The little red chick was always in or around the food bowl.

chickens1_home_nov 2014

I hope it is a hen as I haven’t had any red hens for ages.

chickens02_home_nov 2014

One of the yellow chicks seemed to be very interested in what I was doing.

chickens03_named_home_nov 2014

The Fantails nest has been all go with both eggs hatching and two hungry mouths to feed.

fantail young06_nest_binna burra_named_nov 2014

Every now and then, they would curl up together and have a nap.

fantail07_young_nest_named_binna burra_nov 2014

They always seem to know when one of the parents is around with food.

fantail young01_nest_binna burra_named_small_nov 2014

There is always something to catch around the garden.

fantail01_food_binna burra_named_nov 2014

Which is delivered quickly to the babies.

fantail young03_nest_feeding_binna burra_named_nov 2014

Afterwards there is time to have a bit of a stretch.

fantail young05_nest_binna burra_named_nov 2014

When it gets a bit cooler in the evening, one of the parents comes for a sit to keep them warm.

fantail young04_nest_binna burra_named_small_nov 2014

It’s good just to sit and contemplate their future.

fantail young02_nest_binna burra_named_nov 2014

I think the time spent sitting on eggs and keeping chicks warm may have seemed a bit boring.

fantail_mouth open_named_binna burra_nov 2014

Aren’t the whiskers around the beak amazing. I didn’t know that they had those did you?

That’s all from flowers and baby birds. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of new lives in my life.

Spring – more wonders discovered

Oh yeah, it is Spring. So much is happening, the weather is great for wandering around the north coast and there are so many things to see and do. One drive about took us to Clarrie Hall Dam at the Crams Farm end of the storage. Tweed Council have done a great job making it a great place to visit. Just the view as you drive in is spectacular.

clarrie hall dam01_view_named_oct 2014

The water is covered in water lilies and water birds are everywhere. The Cape Waterlilies make a stunning sight as they stand tall.

cape water lily01_clarrie hall dam_named_oct  2014

The Yellow Waterlilies are dotted here and there around the dam.

water lily_yellow_clarrie hall dam_named_oct 2014

It is so crowded that the leaves curl making it hard for the lilies to push their way skyward.

water lily02_yellow_clarrie hall dam_named_oct  2014

Unfortunately, under the water’s surface is a good amount of Cabomba, an introduced plant from America, usually a fish tank escapee. At the moment it is flowering which makes a good resting spot for dragonflies.

dragonfly_clarrie hall dam_named_oct  2014

This flower was partly submerged and made great patterns on the water.

water plant_flower_clarrie hall dam_named_oct  2014

In the trees, as well on the water, were many birds enjoying the late afternoon spring weather. The Brown pigeons were always wary of the bloke with the camera.

brown pigeon01_clarrie hall dam_named_oct  2014

The Darters took off when someone ventured into the water

darter01_flying_clarrie hall dam_named_oct  2014

While the Eurasian Coots just paddled around looking for something to eat before it was dark.

eurasian coot01_clarrie hall dam_named_oct  2014

The Purple Swamp Hens were always walking about, flicking their tails and squarking in general.

purple swamphen_clarrie hall dam_named_oct 2014

High in one tree the young Willie Wagtails were practising being big birds, flapping wings and generally making a racket.

willie wagtails01_clarrie hall dam_named_oct 2014

The adults were telling them to be quiet, I think.

willie wagtail01_calling_clarrie hall dam_named_oct 2014

Just sitting and looking at the water was very relaxing but it was time to head home.

water_clarrie hall dam_named_oct 2014

When we got home, there was Badger, who had found a shady spot to lay down on the warm spring day.

badger_binna burra_named_oct 2014

Going down to the creek there were birds staying cool among the trees and shrubs. The Emerald Dove kept moving around the tree, all the while watching where I was going.

emerald dove_binna burra_named_oct 2014

The Cunjivoi is flourishing.

cunjivoi01_binna burra_named_oct 2014

Scattered through the bush are little native gardenia plants with their amazing looking flowers.

flower_binna burra_named_oct  2014

I just had to see what was inside the purple flower growing on the fence around the house.

purple flower_binna burra_named_oct  2014

It wouldn’t be Spring if there weren’t birds nesting. The Fantails nest is held together with spider web.

fantail nest_binna burra_named_oct 2014

She sat there watching me as I watched her.

fantail02_nest_binna burra_named_oct 2014

I was waiting for the change over of the egg sitters so I could see how many eggs were in the nest. Two small lovely eggs.

fantail nest_eggs_binna burra_named_oct 2014

Looking up, the splashes of green and orange of the Silky Oak made wonderful abstract patterns.

silky oak_binna burra_named_oct 2014

The warmer weather also had a few blow flies whizzing about. This one seemed to like the pelargonium leaves more than me.
