Hello Everyone

Check out this excellent web site from the Australian Museum and Birds Australia


Backyards Best Practice Guidelines are now available on our website at: http://www.birdsinbackyards.net/spaces/guidelines.cfm These are all free for you to download.

Importantly, these Guidelines are not only designed for home gardeners. Developing effective habitat for birds in urban areas cannot be achieved just by the occasional bird friendly garden (though these are great). Change needs to be achieved at the landscape scale. Whole communities need to be involved and that includes local governments and others who are responsible for the bigger urban picture.

You will see that we have not only the scientific report available, but we have also developed a set of seven handouts which summarise the major findings from this report that applies to a range of different users. They are available for:

  • Bushland Managers and Bushcare Volunteers
  • Local Councils, Planners and the Housing Industry;
  • Landscape Architects;
  • Schools;
  • Street Tree Planners;
  • Open Space Managers – public parks and gardens;
  • Domestic (home) gardeners

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
