The Rivers of Carbon "Riparian Retreat" is a three day retreat spent with ‘people who know stuff’ examining the many reasons why riparian restoration produces multiple benefits.

Counting Cockatoos

Glossy Black Cockatoo - Graham Russell

In a sultry late afternoon in February this year, a company of local field naturalists first gathered, then dispersed, as they do at the same time every year, to visit local farm dams for the annual count of the Glossy Black Cockatoo.

There they sit quietly and, as best they can invisibly, on the dam walls to hopefully sight these beautiful and sadly endangered avians as they arrive to drink. This, like almost all seed-eating birds, they must do daily. There can be long periods of just sitting around and waiting at these sojourns!
