Photo of the Week

This week’s Photo of the Week was not taken last week.
(It was taken October 20, 2016)

Back in August, I posted an audio file of the Beautiful Music that is the sound of the Australian bush.  It was recorded when Dean and I were out bushwalking, and exactly what you expect to hear walking through the underbrush of sub-tropical rainforest areas.  But now we are living it, with a beautiful cacophony starting in the wee hours of every day – while it still looks like this outside.

After spending three months house sitting at Flaxton, we are now only 30 minutes inland from the ocean, minding a house at Ridgewood.  Still located in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Ridgewood is vastly different from Flaxton.  Here we are on a 23-acre property, looking after a couple of beautiful dogs, and nestled in the heart dense bushland, complete with its own bushwalking track.

With a huge selection of birds making the trees their domain, there’s no sleeping in around here.

Here is a selection of the alarms – oops – songs we listen to:

Kookaburras – Predawn

Unknown – Predawn

Everyone else at 5:24 AM (approx 30 minutes after sunrise)

Can anyone tell me what the bird is in the second recording?

    1. What a lovely thing to say, but I’ve no doubt things in Iowa would seem otherworldly to me 🙂


  1. What a beautiful picture. And i enjoyed hearing the bird sounds. Wish I knew what the second one is. What an interesting bird.


    1. I love the photo of the sunrise too, it was a gorgeous morning, and I wish I knew what species the bird is, hopefully someone will tell me.
