Highlighted Blog #21 – That Little Voice

I just love Radar. Pictures of that adorable dog and other animals draw me to this blog. The author is great with a camera and writes in response to various challenges. So interesting!

My contributions to Photo Challenge prompt ‘Ruling the Roost’ shows my new doglet Radar viewing his domain (he could be auditioning for ‘The King and I’) and a playmate attempting to figure out who is in charge, a neighborhood cat who rules from on high, and precious Chili, the doglet who shared my life for […]

Highlighted Blog #16 – The Humane Gardener

Nature is something I appreciate, but I have to admit that I don’t particularly study it. I just love it. One of the reasons I love the Humane Gardener is that it opens my eyes to the contributors to the natural art I appreciate. And shows how general human thoughtlessness might out the simple joys in jeopardy.

Human physiological responses to what Blomberg calls the “audible trash” of planes, trains, automobiles and machinery include hearing loss, elevated heart rates and blood pressure, sleeplessness and decreased mental focus. Not surprisingly, evidence of similar effects on wildlife is mounting, too. A recent study in New Mexico linked manmade noise to reduced egg hatching in western bluebirds.

I don’t know a whole lot about birds. I think they are beautiful, and I love listening to them early on a summer morning. But if one flies by me, I’m more likely to describe it as yellow or blue than to actually know something about it. In fact, I have no idea what bird I just added in my Featured Image, and I’m thinking it might not be one from Australia. Apologies for that misrepresentation if so. I’m starting to learn more, however. Blogs such as aussiebirder.com are changing that.

It’s true, I don’t live in Australia, but maybe someday I will visit. Actually, I should look for a similar site here n North America. Any suggestions?

I love how this man writes in an engaging manner, but also throws in scientific details and fun facts. I had no idea birds could get drunk on sugar content from a tree or even group up to protect the source of their Bacchus-inspired activities. Very interesting. And the images on the site are an art of its own, in addition to the writing. Hope you enjoy the site as much as I do.

Last weekend my wife and I drove to Wollongong Botanic Gardens on the tip off that a single Regent Honeyeater had been visiting a bright red flowering bush known as the ‘Drunk Parrot Tree’ (Schotia brachypetala). To our great delight we were blessed with many sightings of the bird as it came briefly to feed […]
