You know spring is not far off around these parts when
the Australian Cedar next door starts shooting.
The timber cutters from years past
use to spot the sort after Australian Cedar in the spring
by looking for the bright red leafs
emerging from this deciduous tree.
The resident Magpie pair are now lining their nest
with the hair from my recent haircut.
And this bloke.
The good old Australian Brush Turkey.
Building a brand new nest
for his lady friends to lay their eggs in.
He has been at it, scraping leaf mulch from all around
up onto his nest for a couple of weeks now.
