An opportunity to share our love of  and experiences with our feathered friends 


"Project: Birdland
from Gretchen Miller, 16.03.10

Birdland is calling for celebratory, thoughtful, descriptive, creative works 
that engage with the human/avian relationship.

Birds are everywhere. Even in the center of the cities, the white cockatoos 
call as they form silhouettes against blue sky; the rosellas squabble for fruit.

And in the bush birds are the canaries of the environment. They tell us which 
places are thriving, which are dying.

Australia’s bird populations are under threat. Even such iconic and common 
birds as the Kookaburra are diminishing in numbers.

This project explores the idea of birds as part of the Australian identity - 
both individual and cultural.

And this is where you come in with your contributions celebrating Birdland. 
PLEASE join Pool, and then Inspired, Upload, ensure you tick the Birdland 
group, and put your musings there... we're looking forward to it!


The most suitable written and audio works will be selected for inclusion in a 
radio documentary exploring birds and our sense of identity as Australians, as 
well as the science of diminishing bird populations.

So, what do birds mean to you? What is it about birds that you love? Does your 
human community have a relationship with a bird community? Are you one who 
notices the change in seasons by the birds which appear, and then vanish?

Have you ever dreamed of being a bird? What sort of bird would you be? Is a 
family you know of more birdlike than human? Have you written poetry about
