Sweet protest


Black throated finch

Last week was national bird week. Among other activities, there has been a ‘backyard count’ throughout Australia and there is a vote going on for the country’s favourite bird. It’s a two stage process this year, with a ‘run-off’ second round after narrowing the field to a final 10. I was very chuffed to see, when I voted myself in round 1, that the little endangered finch which is threatened by the proposed Adani coal mine in Queensland is in the lead. I gather that lots of conservation and environmentally aware people are using this as a gentle way to raise awareness and make a point. Great!

If you are interested in having a look at the field and casting your vote, here is the link
