    • Thanks BJ yes it is always a delight to catch the white-faced in flight. Yes it really looked like the birds had their own thing going on at the cafe parallel to the humans. Thanks for your kind comment, the show was most satisfying sharing about the local birds and birding as a family recreation, it was great to hear the feedback, and to sell many books and prints. It boosted my website hits also. Have a great weekend:-)

  2. How exciting that you will soon see many of your ‘summer friends’ again! I smiled at the crafty café birds 🙂 and it was wonderful to see your ‘corner’ and you at the exhibition. The prints are very beautiful!

    • Thanks Tiny, yes it was a very delightfully exhausting weekend. One of the other exhibitors found it hard to believe that one could endure talking so much as I was continually engaging with the people coming through. My website took a boost in hits after the show. Yes, we await the waders, they add a delightful dimension to our summer birding. Thanks for viewing my prints. I was so pleased when an entire family bought one each for their rooms, including the two children. Have a great week my friend:-)

  3. Interesting post! My son and I just read a fine children’s picture book, Circle by Jannie Baker, that details the migration of the godwits with lovely collage images. Thanks for sharing your expeditions!

    • Thanks for sharing Melissa, it is lovely that mums are still reading with their children, that was the purpose of writing my book last year. A book parents can read to their children and later read for themselves. The Godwit is my favourite wader, as you would know from my previous posts, it is featured in my book as the most Endurant bird teaching us to press on and achieve our goals. By using the unusual characteristics of Australian bird and lovely photo pictures I have been able to teach life skills to young people in an interesting and educational way. Books allow us to healthily interact with our children in a way the electronic media seems to preclude. Thanks again Melissa for your comment:-)
