In The Park In Cobden Town

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 01:33 by Francis Duggan
In the Public Park in Cobden the wild birds chirp and sing
And the black crickets are singing Nature's an amazing thing
And the tiny brown frogs are calling one could never get them wrong
Most creatures born in Nature distinctive in their call or song
I've been learning about Nature though I do not know her that well
Though the grey butcherbird and magpie by their voices I can tell
Yet every day from Nature we learn something new
Though her wonders...

Red Capped Plovers

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 01:30 by Francis Duggan
Red cap and brownish wings and unders white to gray
And a familiar sight on beaches of them one can say
They can run rather quickly and when approached fly a short distance away
You often see them near water by sea, lake or bay
The size of a house sparrow for shore birds quite small
They do not have a song just a quick churring call
From September to January their nest near water a scrape on the ground
And out of breeding season in small flocks they...

Great White Egrets

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 01:27 by Francis Duggan
To see one standing in shallow water a beautiful sight
So graceful to look at and graceful in flight
The great white egret with feathers white as snow
Birds that I see often though little of know
They build their flat nest of sticks over water on top of a tall tree
Out of breeding season loners they seem to like their own company
They eat small fish and small water creatures which they readily kill
With a very quick stab of their long pointy bill...

Bassian Thrushes

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 01:23 by Francis Duggan
They are not birds that one does see every day
The bassian thrushes of South Eastern Australia mottled brown with spots of gray
To high wooded places they seem to belong
And they are distinctive in their flute like song
They live on molluscs and insects and worms they do find on the ground
But in large numbers they are not known to abound
The song of the male bird melodious and clear
A beautiful voice of late Winter and Spring of the year
An...

The Vixen Is Calling

Posted Tuesday 8th June 2010 at 01:54 by Francis Duggan
The vixen is calling in the pale moonlight
Her wild cries echo in the still of the night
Perhaps she's in heat and calling for a mate
For to become pregnant she needs to copulate
Yet to her calls I cannot hear a reply
Perhaps there is not any male fox nearby
But tonight she'll keep travelling and calling until she does find
A male willing to mate with her of her own kind,
A distinctive wildness in a fox's cry
And of their skills of survival...
