Some do’s and dont’s
Bohollow has been buzzing with the
incessant calls of baby birds. We are always
pushed to our limits each year during the height
of the nesting season. The only saving grace
is that baby birds grow extremely quickly
so as fast as we are preparing fledglings to
fend for themselves and releasing, more are
pouring in through the shelter’s doors.
Build some nesting boxes
This spring, with the near perfect conditions, birds
are breeding prolifically. Nesting boxes encourage
local bird life, especially in areas where there are
a limited number of hollows for birds such as
rosellas and galahs.
‘I love all species of our native ducks...‘
I love the presence of tiny
ducklings at Bohollow and watching
them grow so quick, within eight
weeks newly hatched ducklings
transform from tiny balls of fluff to
flying wanderers of our wetlands.
Wedge-tailed Eagle comes into care
One of the most magnificent species I
have the privilege to work with is the Wedgetailed
Some people are known to be
morning people, I, myself have
always been known as a bit of
a night owl. I find the seclusion
and peacefulness of the later
hours soothing and a lot goes on
out there with our native critters
while most of us are sleeping.
