Sitting quietly outside on our timber decking and enjoying a little lunch, I was amazed at the number and variety of birds that happily flew before me, rested a while, chatted or let me hear and marvel at their bird song. Deep winter here but somedays the wind is still, the sun is shining and all seems at peace.
In the space of ten minutes or so, I was entertained by white cockatoos, melodious magpies, darting and gliding swallows, the tiniest of finches with an incredible song, a kookaburra laughing in the distance and to my surprise, a white spoonbill, gracefully and methodically skimming the water's edge of our dam.
It's a rich and interesting world out there!
