Entertaining Guests at Home and Elsewhere

Eco Friendly Daily

It can be such a joy to be around some of your favorite people on the planet. It can be particularly fun to meet up with people you haven’t been around for a while. Many things can stop friends and family members from meeting up in person. Busy schedules can do so. Travel plans can do so.

Birds of the United States (and Provinces) of (North) America

10,000 Birds

We birders have a different perspective of the world from most other people. To us, borders seem much more porous, and somewhat less real. Most of us don’t like walls, because they might keep living things from moving as freely as they should. The word migration brings us joy and expectation.

Northern Rosella

10,000 Birds

One of the birds that I failed to mention last week at Mary Pool rest area is the Northern Rosella. Northern Rosella are resident in the north of Australia, but not in large flocks. We rarely encounter more than one pair at any location. They are a species that can be well camouflaged despite their bright colours. If they are high up in foliage then you could easily miss out on observing them. Thankfully at Mary Pool rest area we encountered a pair on the ground feeding.
