Spring On The North Coast Of New South Wales

Wonga Pigeons have far-carrying repeated calls

Warm weather & lots of rain provides perfect breeding conditions for our wildlife as plants flower and fruit and insects emerge.
As The North Coast Of New South Wales enters into Spring, Wonga pigeons give their territorial, far-carrying repeated ‘wonk-wonk-wonk’ calls as they forage for seeds on the ground. Rufous whistlers add their most ‘Australian’ voices to the bushlands with their impetuous and spirited spring songs, rippling bursts of melody and explosive ‘eee-chong’ calls. Their golden whistler relatives have sweet brisk notes including ‘sweetawit, wheat-wheat-wheat-whittle, and ‘dee-dee-dee-ah-whit’ calls.

During Spring On The North Coast Of New South Wales, Willie wagtails also have spirited sweet calls that sound like it is repeating ‘sweet pretty creature’ and is particularly memorable when heard on still nights. Most memorable of all is the long explosive whipcrack of the eastern whipbird as it forages for insects in the undergrowth. The white-throated gerygone is also known as the bush canary because of its yellow breast and its beautiful, silvery ‘falling-leaf’ song in a minor key.The unique music of the Australian bush particularly during Spring On The North Coast Of New South Wales is known as the biophony, is everywhere being eliminated by the loud human noises, amplified music, traffic, generators, etc known as anthrophony, as ever expanding developments impact the fragmented habitats and the wildlife corridors in a farm and urbanised landscape.

Spring On The North Coast Of New South Wales, Wettest October Ever Recorded 2010.

15 October, Middle of the month and the rain continues to fall. This is a rare opportunity for frogs to successfully reproduce in many different areas. Many species, ranging in size from the big green tree frogs down to the froglets, lay their eggs in temporary pools away from predatory fish. These have hatched and the tadpoles are feeding on algae.
Continuing rains means everything to their future because the tadpoles have a chance of growing to maturity before warm weather evaporates their pools and herons and egrets feast on them.
Spring On The North Coast Of New South Wales is one of the most beautiful and pleasant places to visit, its certainly one of my favourite places to witness the dawning of a new season.
