  1. Lovely post, full of beautiful photos and wonderful information. What a gorgeous area, Ashley! And I know your grandson is an awesome student absorbing the wonderful passion of birding with you. Little Pippa will soon follow! 🙂

    • Thanks Donna, it is good to see you back again, and receive your warm comments. Yes these two grandies are the most likely to become birders out of the four, as their parents have taken them on a one year trip around Australia a couple of years ago which gave them a bird appreciation among other things. Have a wonderful week, and i hope you are able to get out and about again and have healed from your post injuries.

  2. What a wonderful variety of birds you have captured! And I so agree about getting youngsters to see the beauty outside as opposed to their screens 🙂 I’m not sure I would want to run into one of those monitors though, oh my!!!

    • Thanks Jen, Yes it is a goal of mine to motivate interest and concern in young people in the importance of spending time outside in the nature, and how important it is, more so than ever, because of the very stressful city societies we live in. Thankfully the monitors are bot usually aggressive, you just don’t want one to run up you, as their claws are razor sharp, and they can run up the side of a tree in seconds. Have a great week!

      • oh my, that sounds awful, the monitors I mean! Yes, one of the things I loved about homeschooling was all the time we could spend outdoors when my kids were young….it’s a hard time to grow up/or raise kids, whichever way you look at it. Have a nice week also!

  3. What wonderful photos of a great assortment of birds you were able to see and hear. Those lace monitors sure look big and healthy, I think I would have been quite concerned seeing so many of them up so close! Have a great weekend! 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, Yes the monitors make you think you are back in the dinosaur age, they are doing well from picnic scraps and the like, but they did not show any need for fear as long as you did not confront them.
