This week my blog is an educational movie from my YouTube Channel, as I am not blogging for the next month. I hope you enjoy it, and it gives some insight into our bird behaviours. Several of my friends have shared how they have been recently attacked by birds. This is common here in Spring and early Summer as nesting season gets underway. Australia has some of the most aggressive birds in the world and the most dangerous. Many birds suffer stress and even death due to the bully tactics of particular bird species. Much research is being done to try and remedy this problem, as more placid species of Honeyeater and Pardolote are being forcibly removed from their normal habitats by bird bullies.
Many are surprised to know that one of the most feared bullies in the bird world is our beautiful Rainbow Lorikeet, its bite gets results, though the alpha male Magpie reigns supreme among the passerines, even the Lorikeet won’t argue with his beak, being one of the hardest.
Enjoy your week and stay safe. The weather this year has been the worse birding weather ever, here in Sydney with so much rain. It has been the wettest year on record, breaking all records. I am planning another reprint as my books have been selling so well, especially now international tourists are coming back. I have been told by clients and purchasers that my books are some of the best souvenirs one can bring home from a visit to Australia. They are authentic Australian, not made in China as many are, and about Australia. They are available here online, and make great Christmas presents. The price is now $32 for Australian customers due to increased postage rates.
Below is a song which is written with Isaiah 40:28-31 in mind and is the source of my Soaring Therapy for those who are anxious, or become anxious or overwhelmed during the their busy day. I first used it for a lady I worked with many years ago. Every time she would get stressed and I would look at her and spread my arms like a soaring eagle and she would smile and go back to work, because she would be able to click herself back into perspective, God’s peace/faith perspective rather than her own limited anxiety/fear perspective.
