Red Browed Firetails

Posted Saturday 3rd October 2009 at 00:48 by Francis Duggan
Red browed finches or red browed firetails two names they are known by
They like to live near cover where from bush to tree they fly
The reason they live near cover the well informed say
Is that they need places to hide in from bigger birds of prey.

Dark olive green in colour red eyebrows, red rump and olive tail
And with only minor differences between the female and the male
Their calls rather high pitched sound a bit like tizeee

On Seeing Goldfinches

Posted Saturday 3rd October 2009 at 00:45 by Francis Duggan
So beautiful to look at in the sun of a Winter's day
They feed upon the thistle seeds by the fence by the roadway
A small flock of goldfinches in red and fawn and gold
In their beautiful colours so lovely to behold.

How often in the sunshine of a distant and long gone Spring
On the hedgerows of the old fields I heard their kin birds sing
I love them for their beauty and their familiar twittering song
You see them once and hear them and you...

Grieving Of sheep

Posted Saturday 3rd October 2009 at 00:42 by Francis Duggan
In the nearby paddock the combined bleatings of sheep
Keep preventing me of nodding off to sleep

With their constant noising echoing in my head.

The farmer he sold off their lambs yesterday
For his lack of compassion in lack of sleep I must pay
Even far from the City all not peaceful and quiet
Their bleatings so loud in the calm of the night.

If I lost a loved one I would feel the...

Mother Nature

Posted Saturday 3rd October 2009 at 00:39 by Francis Duggan
For her actions Mother Nature is above any blame
Since she always treats life and death as the same
The dead of the World in her bosom lay
And she goes on living and night follows day.

Mother Nature she dons her green cloak of the Spring
And in her leafy woods nesting birds chirp and sing
The life that she gives one day she will receive
And for her dead children she never does grieve.

For to sustain us on Nature we must depend...

10/1-2/09 - Halepohaku, Mauna Kea

Posted Thursday 1st October 2009 at 19:50 by bkrownd

Still plenty of 'apapane at Halepohaku, with one or two singing out of sight inside each tree. Breezy today, which is keeping the birds from showing themselves as much as earlier in the week.

Lots of 'ohi'a bloom high on the Saddle. If the weather ever clears up I'll be trying to get out on Powerline Road ASAP.

Friday was blowing misty, and the birds loved it. A few more were visible flying from tree to tree. Still no red-billed leiothrix at HP this week, and...
