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?
In response to the WordPress Discover Challenge – Song
Such cool bird song! It’s almost otherworldly to this Iowa person!
What a lovely thing to say, but I’ve no doubt things in Iowa would seem otherworldly to me 🙂
What a beautiful picture. And i enjoyed hearing the bird sounds. Wish I knew what the second one is. What an interesting bird.
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.
