Waiting for the birds:
small drips of water in the gully form stalactites
Spotted pardalote yellow-faced honeyeater brown gerygone lyrebird nest
balanced on a ledge of the overhang in the cool interior of the rainforest
We stand with the birds –
reluctant to enter the artificial brightness of the encircling clear-felled hills
