Lamington National Park - (Python Track)
Leader Patricia Stockwell
The Weather was WET, with moderate to heavy rain all morning.

However the ground birds were still feeding and we observed Logrunners, Basian Thrushes, Large- billed, White Browed and Yellow-throated Scrubwrens. A Tree creeper was heard calling and a Brown Cuckoo Dove flew over. Feeding in crevices in the canopy were Paradise Riflebirds, and the flashes of yellow were Eastern Yellow robins and Golden Whistlers.

At lunchtime our table visitors were 12 female Regent Bowerbirds, a pair of Satin Bowerbirds, and a Spinebill which did a quick flypast.
The weather cleared for a sunny afternoon and a trip down to O’Reily’s winery, where, along the river, we observed Spangled Drongos, Black faced Monarch, white-throated Honeyeaters, and an Australian Magpie lark sitting on her nest. There were Figbirds, Dollarbirds, and a splendid view of a Sacred Kingfisher followed by a stunning Azure Kingfisher flying the length of the river to complete our day.
All bird lists for the day are sent to participants

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.
