John and Mary Kopke "The Ship Mahogany" LP 1982 "GroovUs Feed Aartists"

This album features John and Mary Kopke who, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, were active folksingers based in Warrnambool in Victoria.
The album features a mix of tracks ably performed by this couple with some good vocal and instrumental backing.

The title comes from a self-penned song apparently about a wrecked ship discovered somewhere near Warrnambool. Of course, regulars to the blog will recognise a number of "standards" in this album.

Tracklist
1. The Ship Mahogany
2. Leaving Liverpool
3. Ballad of Cob and Co
4. MTA (Melbourne adaption)
5. Bo The Banjo Man
6. Flash Jack from Gundagai
7. Reedy Lagoon
8. Mary's Choice (trads)
9. Blame it on the Kellys
10. Drovers Dream
11. Ballarat-o
12. Click go the Shears.

William H Gass & Metafiction Proud Foot Words

FOBIF September walk Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests

Damien Cook with Crocodile Reservoir in the background.

The sunny forecast for last Sunday meant a big group came to our second last FOBIF walk for 2017. We set out from near the corner of Spring Gully Road and Fryers Road and proceeded across country to Crocodile Reservoir before turning back to the starting point.

Leaders Damien Cook and Elaine Bayes once again provided an informative and entertaining commentary on interesting features of the landscape and local flora and fauna. Julian Hollis helped out with geological information as did Frances Cincotta with plant identification..

As you can see from the photos below there was a spectacular display of spring flowers. Click on photo to enlarge. Photos were contributed by Ruth, Rosemary and Bronwyn.

Our last walk for the year on 15 October will be in Muckleford Forest led by local Geoff Nevill. The focus will be on orchids, other wildflowers and some mining remains.

Dont miss this show Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests

Mountains and Waterways, our latest photographic exhibition at TOGS cafe, finishes on Thursday 28 September. Photos range from a closeup of leaves underwater to landscapes of Mount Alexander and Mount Tarrengower. There are also 5 terrific birds on water images by Patrick Kavanagh, Damien Kelly, Geoff Park and Mitchell Parker. The response to the show has been very positive with a number of people commenting that the photos remind them of why they live here. 

All photos are for sale for under $100 including frames. Proceeds of sales go to FOBIF to cover costs. You can see more Mountains and Waterways photos on our Flickr site and on previous posts here and here.

We would like to thank TOGS once again for their support in mounting this exhibition. This is our fourth show at the cafe and our eighth in total.

Perfect habitat Natural Newstead

Over the years Ive often driven past this small patch of bush on the Newstead-Daylesford Road its just east of one of my favourite birding spots, the Rise and Shine Bushland Reserve.

What is most striking about the spot is the damage done to the area from gold mining, with metres of topsoil eroded and straggly Grey Box and Yellow Gum rooted into the subsoil. Im glad I stopped the other day as I was rewarded with a good election of birds. In addition to those picture here there was: Brown Treecreeper, Mistletoebird, Yellow-faced Honeyeater and Grey Shrike-thrush.

Endangered birds in Victoria, Australia "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

This 2012 video from Victoria in Australia is about mallee emu-wrens.

This video says about itself:

In September 2014, I had the excitement of finding a population of at least 3-4 Mallee Emu-wren, an endangered species, at Wyperfeld National Park in northwest Victoria, Australia. My video here is hand-held and rough but, along with the pictures I got, I hope it shows you that these tiny vulnerable birds are present at this location.

Irreplaceable Murray-Sunset, Hattah & Annuello, Australia

In our Irreplaceable series, we cast a light on the globally-significant bird habitats that are in danger of disappearing forever.

By Alex Dale

Stretching across three national parks and covering 7,004 km2 of semi-arid shrubland in North-Western Victoria, this area is one of the last refuges for a number of endangered bird species dependent on its unique mallee habitat for survival.

Mallee is a term used to describe species of eucalypt plant that have adapted to survive in hot, dry areas prone to bushfires. They boast a swollen root crown laced with buds. When the plant is destroyed by fire, the dormant buds allow it to grow back in multi-stemmed form. After 15-20 years of unburnt growth, they offer the perfect environment to deliver sanctuary and shelter to several specialist species.

These include Malleefowl Leipoa ocellata, a chicken-sized megapode once widespread across Australia, but now restricted to scattered locations across southern Australia. Other resident species are scarcer still. A small colony of 20-40 breeding pairs of Black-eared Miner Manorina melanotis in Murray-Sunset National Park is considered one o...
