Outing #39: The Confident Currawong

Broeski’s back around the tent, making going for water difficult, and a Currawong who likes to FLIRT with DEATH.

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13: Day 10

(Sunday 9-November-2014) @12:42pm Junior has already paid a visit this morning, although he didn’t hang around the tent much because I didn’t put any food out for him. I thought about putting some pasta on to cook quickly, then decided not to bother: Not only has he had more than enough food from me in […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 8

(Friday 7-November-2014) MONITOR MATTERS @4:25pm Well Broeski still hasn’t shown-up, though the new lizard on the block was back this afternoon for pasta which is no great surprise,  given the quantity of free food he pigged-out on yesterday. It’s pretty easy to tell whether it’s the same Monitor that stuffed his guts the day before […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 10

(Sunday 26-October-2014) @1:38pm Another day, another hundred insect bites. So there’s been no sign of the Lace Monitor thus far today. I’m not particularly bothered though, since I’ve got somewhat more important things to do besides watch him for a change today. There’s regular pasta out there for whoever wants it, and if he doesn’t […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 9

(Saturday 25-October-2014) MONITOR MATTERS @10:34am Lizard-man is outside eating the potato pasta I saved for him, though he doesn’t seem so keen for this creamy pasta as he is for the regular stuff. I’m sure like most too, how ‘keen’ he is relates directly to how hungry he is and after a kilogram of chicken […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 8

(Friday 24-October-2014) @10:38am So it’s a bit of a slow day today,  partly because I want to wait for the Monitor to make his daily appearance – so I can observe his general level of well-being – and partly because food, coffee and – well all my supplies really – are running low. I may […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 7

(Thursday 23-October-2014) @10:53am Today – since it’s a sunny once again – the plan is to tip the pasta on the ground, then wait for him to visit. That’s it. That’s all the plans for the day. Since I saw him yesterday I expect he’ll be dropping-in today at some point. MONITOR MATTERS: THE REUNION […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #12 – Day 4

(Monday 20-October-2014) @11:52am Grey and cloudy in the national park this morning. The air is cool bordering cold and the skies look set to open any moment now. The Currawong have begun circling the camp – no doubt for the uneaten bread I left out for the Possum and Bush Rat last night – so […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #12 – Day 2

(Saturday 18-October-2014) REPTILIAN MATTERS @12:55pm A few minutes ago now, I made a potentially lizard-killing error in judgement by feeding him a sealed plastic “snap-lock” sandwich bag filled with raw chicken necks. Several times previously I’ve given him fully sealed plastic bags packed full of my own ‘special recipe’ bush-spagetti and he’s always ripped, clawed […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #11 – Day 7

Added (Saturday 11-October-2014) Reptilian Matters @12:58pm Okay, I’ve fed the baby dinosaur his chicken wings, and he’s now resting it off; basking around the tent – moving every now and then, but never any further away. Several times he’s gone around to the plastic tarp for a drink. A video of him drinking is on […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #11 – Day 3

(Second image is Saturday’s, but couldn’t be f’d waiting for that post to load seperately, to edit it) Added (Sunday 5-October-2014) @2:51pm “A week at least”, I recall stating yesterday as an estimation and yet here he is again. He’s looking, and found the odd bit of chicken from my sandwich yesterday but he’s got […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #10 – Day 4

(Left-to-right: …) Uploaded (Tuesday 23-September-2014) @11:10am Alright about to go get me some water. Although I like the walk in general, I dislike the first five-hundred meters – the stretch of scrub that leads to the trail. Not only is it like walking on dry, crunchy noodles it’s so noisy, there’re so many dead trees, […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #10 – Day 2

(Left-to-right: Adult male Lyrebird, Fence Skink, Common Brush-tailed Possum, Pied Currawong) Uploaded (Sunday 21-September-2014) @12:14pm Unbelievable how well you sleep out here. It’s like some kind of natural sedative: the Sun sets, you eat, lay down and before you know it your eyes start getting heavier each hour that passes. Next thing, you start dropping […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #9 – Day 10

(Sunday 14-September-2014) @10:57am Alrighty, we’re all done with morning matters, and are about to head out, deeeeeeper into the valley, than ever before. Got my satellite beacon, phone, GPSr and in my backpack, two bottles: one half full of tepid, room-temperature “iced” coffee, the other half full of that orange flavoured powder stuff. Nothing but […]
