Wildlife Talk - DVD Birdlife of Arkarra Lagoons - Maryborough Library
The Fraser Coast Branch of Wildlife Queensland will be presenting one of Alan Peebles’ beautiful DVDs on the birdlife of Arkarra Lagoons.
For the last Library wildlife talk of the year to be held in November, the Fraser Coast Branch of Wildlife Queensland will be presenting one of Alan Peebles’ beautiful DVDs on the birdlife of Arkarra Lagoons. Alan sadly passed away in January this year and in his later years, was a strong supporter of Wildlife Queensland. He was a regular presenter in the Library, sharing his passion for our local wildlife.
The Arkarra Lagoons DVD contains stunning photographic shots of the lagoons at sunrise and sunset, undoubtedly the best time to see birdlife. Arkarra, Hervey Bay’s Kakadu, is a haven for water birds, among them: Black Swans, Plumed Whistling Ducks, Royal Spoonbills, Nankeen Night Herons, Comb-crested Jacanas, Purple Swamphens, cormorants. grebes and pelicans.
Never failing to surprise, Alan has also filmed the bush birds around Arkarra. You will be observers to a female Blue-faced Honeyeater feeding her young, as well as seeing Scarlet, Brown and Lewin’s Honeyeaters. Included also are Grey- crowned Babblers, Reed Warblers, Eastern Yellow Robins, Grey Butcher Birds, King Parrots, Rainbow Lorikeets and rosellas, Restless Flycatchers, White-browed Scrubwrens, Crested Pigeons, bee-eaters, pardalotes, kites and ospreys. The piercing sound of the Eastern Whipbird – not heard in suburbia - will startle you. You won’t miss the scarlet chest of the Mistletoebird or the cheeky behaviour of the Noisy Friarbird.
