Life's not just for the birds - but then ...


Some say life's for the birds, but there's more to it than that ...

There's the North Queensland Day Moth (Alcides metaurus) for one. Though not such a common sight as the name might imply.

And the Northern Double Drummer Cicada (Thopha sessiliba) for another. Though more often heard than seen - on a hat after being picked up along a track.

And the White-lipped Treefrog (Litoria infrafrenata) for one more. Though this one doesn't frequent my shower, unlike a larger cousin.



But the birds do keep coming. Three little ones lately: Bush Thick-knee (Burhinus grallarius) youngsters, hugging the ground and playing dead even if picked up. Life and death for the birds ...
