  1. Beautiful waterfalls, Ashley, and I’m in love with your Eastern Yellow Robin with your cute shots and knowing one would possibly follow me along a trail! 😃 What a wonderful treat for you both to see the Gang Gang Cockatoos, I am happy for you!

    • Thanks Donna, yes we love the way the Robin comes close to check us out and then follows us, sometimes it even leads us along the track, always clinging to a tree and watching our every move. The Gang Gangs were an added blessing, and this blessing was multiplied last week, which I share in my next post I published today 🙂

  2. The waterfalls are beautiful, but having an eastern yellow robin follow you along, even if it was just hoping for food to be disturbed, would have been even more wonderful to see! Enjoy your bird outings, we are now allowed to travel anywhere within Tassie, and I am on holidays from work now, so perfect timing to do some exploring. 🙂

    • Thanks Takami, yes we had such a perfect day out together. My wife is enjoying this time in our lives and starting to enjoy slipping into semi retirement. Thanks for your kind well wishes. Praying you and your hubby have a restful and enjoyable weekend also.:-)

  4. Looks like a superb day out, glad you were able to enjoy time together.
    I’d have gone just for the waterfalls. 🙂
    I often ponder the verse that says, “And God walked in the garden in the cool of the evening”

    • Thanks David, yes the waterfalls add an extra dimension to the enjoyment. Yes the thought of God walking in the garden carries a certain amount of ponderability. Whether it was the pre-incarnate Jesus, an Angel representative, it is amazing to even consider it. I have my own versions of walking with God when I am out birding alone, as I did yesterday. ‘Hope you are able to get out more now. It seems each state is different, it is like we have become separate countries. You would think from the way most people are behaving in Sydney that there never was a pandemic and that social distancing is a thing of the past. At least some of us are taking it serious for good reasons.

  5. Thanks William, yes we take our Lord along with us when we go birding, as he likes to be involved in every aspect of our lives. We believe this how Adam’s relationship was before the Fall.

  6. Wow, I never actually thought of it that way. Of course, I give glory to the Creator for all that I see, but never thought about Him giving the gift of seeing particular birds or wonders. But it rings with truth! Instantly another scripture was brought to my mind: “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32. William
