On Hamilton Lake

Posted Monday 2nd May 2011 at 02:09 by Francis Duggan
In the reeds the moorhens and coots their dark young do hide
In Hamilton Lake where the musk duck reside
The male with a fleshy bag hanging under his bill
That at ease he inflate and deflate in life his given skill
For it's varied species of waterfowl a place of renown
The beautiful lake close to Hamilton Town
Home to ducks such as pacific black, hardhead and the gray and chestnut teal
A lake that to lovers of waterbirds holds great appeal
Where the yellow billed and royal spoonbill and a bird beautiful and graceful in it's own way
The solitary snow white great egret can be seen every day
Where black swan and black and white pelican and a waterbird with feathers of a purply sheen
The eastern swamphen are regularly seen
On Hamilton Lake by Hamilton Town
Amongst the Southern Grampians ornithologists a place of waterbird life renown.
