I Long For A Place

Posted Friday 18th February 2011 at 23:24 by Francis Duggan
I long for a place by a river away from the streets of the town
Where musical shrike thrush is whistling in his feathers of light gray to brown
Away from the noise created by humans where the water goes gurgling along
And where gray butcherbird he is piping he has such a beautiful song

I long for a place in the country away from the loud city street
A small bungalow off of a by road near where a creek and a river do meet
Of such a place i often daydream...

I Have Seen The Sunset Of Many A Day

Posted Friday 18th February 2011 at 23:20 by Francis Duggan
I have seen the sunset of many a day
Since i left my first homeplace from here far away
Claraghatlea about a mile west of Millstreet Town
Since then on many roads i've driven up and down

For my years of life materially i do not have much to show
And by such things one is judged by i have come to know
And though my best years in physical terms to the forever gone
I too do love life and i want to live on

Yet my thoughts often...

Juggling birds & college

Posted Wednesday 16th February 2011 at 14:16 by 93Birder
Oh the days that I could ring my grandad miss a day of school and go to one of my favourite reserves and spend the day birding... It saddens me that I can no longer do that.

I can safely say I will never ever stop birding and if anything I hope to do more when im older than I am doing now. However in recent times I have been going less and less, grandads getting old, I'm getting more work and birding is being pushed to the back. I know it sounds silly and I should focus on my studies,...

The conscious thoughts of the younger generation.

Posted Tuesday 15th February 2011 at 08:52 by 93Birder
Where to begin? Been birding since I was young'in and have loved every outing, trip, walk you name it I have enjoyed it (except possibly cley in 70mph winds and torrential downpours)!
The point of this blog entry today is to express my views and opinions of that self-conscious back thought that I constantly get whenever im birding.

Lets start at the begining of my thoughts, when I am out birding I am in the 'zone' I feel relaxed and calm and have a fantastic time. but whenever...

Pipit expert Please!

Posted Sunday 13th February 2011 at 21:41 by martinhughes180
Pleased to be a new member of BirdForum. Thank you for a wonderful website.
Can someone help with a mystery Pipit. The photos below were taken last November at Hannafor Cornwall. I am familiar with the local Rock and Meadow Pipits, however a group of 5 Pipits grabbed my attention due to their behavior. When spooked, they grouped together and took to a nearby bush (the local Rock and Meadow pipits usually disperse and fly towards the shoreline rocks and weed). The legs were almost black...
