Memories Of Chaffinches

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:33 by Francis Duggan
Though little of their ways I can claim to know
The chaffinches are birds of groves, woods and hedgerow
Yet the male unmistakeable by his chirp or his song
By sight or by sound one cannot get them wrong
I have seen their nest on fork of low branch of tree
A wonder of Nature indeed for to see
A neat cup shaped nest of mosses and lichen made
With four bean sized reddish eggs slightly blotched brown that the female had laid
From my younger years...

I've Been Learning Of Nature

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:29 by Francis Duggan
I've been learning of Nature ever since I was a boy
And my walks in her quiet places I always do enjoy
And though her wonders many her secrets are not few
And every day we live of her we learn something new
The more we learn of Nature the more our wonder of her grow
And yet we come to realize how little of her we do know
The intricacies of Nature quite an amazing thing
There is far more to a bird than the song the bird does sing
To sketch her...

Coots

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:26 by Francis Duggan
Birds I see often sometimes every day
Though from water never see them far away
Dumpy looking dark birds on land with white on forehead and bill
Their distinctive cries to say the least quite shrill.

For medium sized water birds they have big ugly feet
But when seen in water the difference is complete
They swim and dive for their food with such grace
That out of water they seem out of place.

They build their nests of dried water...

The Pine Marten

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:23 by Francis Duggan
A dark brown small cat sized member of the weasel family the pine marten in light of day is seldom seen
It lives on fruits as well as birds and small mammals 'tis said that their range it is spreading recorded in places where they once never had been
That they kill weak lambs as well as poultry and that some farmers do not like them at all
But it is quite natural for Nature's predators for to prey on the defenceless and the small
Unlike the red fox the pine marten in...

On Long Billed Corellas

Posted Monday 7th June 2010 at 01:40 by Francis Duggan
You hear them squawking loudly in the evening late
As to roost on the tall gums they do congregate
The white long billed corellas in large flocks much noise do create
Though 'tis said that their numbers are decreasing at a steady rate
With their long hooked bills they dig for bulbs and tubers in the ground
And though within their small range they do seem to abound
Their rate of reproduction 'tis said does seem rather slow
By those who of their ways...
