Lazy like a Koala

10,000 Birds

It was challenging in tall trees, but what was surprising to us were the number of Koalas that we came across as we looked up. Koalas are not the most active of creatures and they always seem to be eating or sleeping and very rarely moving. Oh, birders…… Another busy day for this Koala! Trips Australia Koala Victoria

Rufous Fantail and other forest surprises

I raised my binoculars and there was one huge male Koala relaxing in the fork of the tall tree. There’s a Koala in this photo! Koala-circled to show you the location! The Koala becomes obvious when you zoom in a bit! The Koala was still present in the same tree and the identification of the chicks in the higher nest was confirmed to be that of a Brown Goshawk when an adult returned with food.

Australian Firefighter Rescues Koala

Critter News

Here's a video of an Australian firefighter making a big difference to one little koala. Lots of people have died in the wildfires in Australia, and I'm sure a lot of animals have suffered too. This critter was lucky, and was rescued. Here is a link to a story about her (now named Sam) and her new friend Bob. David) Tree, a volunteer with the Country Fire Authority Victoria, has visited Sam since her rescue and was delighted to see she had found a boyfriend in Bob.

There was a Koala doing…nothing! Koala doing…nothing! The Koala then had an itch, so there was a little bit of action! Koala. Over recent weeks I have been able to share some of my observations along the Great Southern Rail Trail in Victoria, Australia. I have introduced you to the sections from Foster to Fish Creek and also Foster to Toora. This week I will introduce you to the section from Fish Creek to Buffalo.

Yanchep National Park-Perth

One of the main attractions for overseas visitors is the Koala boardwalk where the only Koalas in Western Australia live. The Koala is not native to Western Australia, but a small population was introduced in 1938 and they continue to reside in the Yanchep National Park. It is a short easy stroll and you can easily observe the Koalas doing very little! Koala.

Foster to Fish Creek

10,000 Birds

Koalas live in the forest around here, but you do not always see them. Koala. Over the past few weeks I have spent many hours walking the Great Southern Rail Trail. From our base, which has been Foster for most of the time and Fish Creek over recent weeks, I have walked the stretch of Rail Trail from Foster to Fish Creek several times. I have walked from Foster to Fish Creek and back in a day or just walked in one direction or shorter sections from either end.

Australian Fireman Honored by Animal Rights Activists

Critter News

The fireman who saved Sam the Koala is now an international Youtube star. The defendant faces 21 counts of murder, and Peta also wants to see him charged with cruelty to animals (as) it has been reported that over a million native animals may have been killed in the fires in Victoria, including kangaroos, koalas, possums, lizards and birds,' Peta said in a statement. And getting recognition he deserves for his kindness.Mr
