My wife and I share a love of bird observing and bird photography which takes us all over Australia. We love meeting other keen birders and sharing our experiences. We always get blessed with the unexpected experience or gift, as we call it, of new and interesting birds, each time we go out birding. We love Australia, and the variety that each state and region offers in its wildlife and nature aspects.
When my wife and I first met we did not know that we were both bird lovers, this was an extra bonus in our relationship and continues to strengthen our relationship, sharing this love in common. The other more important aspect we share in common, that binds us in love and has brought us through life’s storms is our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and Father God. We rejoice in the fact that God had ‘Kept the best till last’. To us both, this is like when the wine towards the end of a wedding reception, had appeared to have run out, and Jesus graciously turned water into a very good vintage wine, better than what they had been drinking earlier. So God brought us together at the right time for each other to continue the last phase of our lives together, and heal from our past. Our heart is for those who have been wounded from their past relationships or experiencing social exclusion and difficulty in life due to the effects of dysfunctional family modeling.
Having retired from my career in medical science I have become an author and speaker. In 2015 I published my first book ‘What The Birds Teach Us?‘ (my legacy to my grandchildren and the youth of today) which was aimed at Primary School aged children and early teens, though adults have been giving the most encouraging testimonies. The book was a sell-out success and a Second Edition was published and released in 2020 amid the Covid pandemic, which has continued to sell amazingly well because of its unique content and format.

A second book called “Flight of a Fledgling” (Growing Up and Leaving Home) was later published in March 2021. This book targets ages 16 to adult and addresses important life choices and counselling issues for young adults regarding personal, relational and family life, as they prepare to leave The Nest and launch out into the world.

If you are wondering why the Red-tailed Tropicbird is my avatar and website symbol, it is because this is the first bird I actively pursued, travelling to to Norfolk Island to especially encounter, after seeing it fly backwards during a courting ritual, in a documentary film. From that experience and seeing so many other birds there, I moved from landscape to bird photography. We have so embraced the study of Australian birds, that bird behaviour has become our main focus, relating it to human behaviour. Recent research into bird neurology has found that birds are very intelligent creatures and we can learn many life lessons from the way they do life.
Recreational bird watching (birding) is a healthy and interesting pastime. Click hereto read of the studies that support our view.
