words for birds

Pardalotus_with_nesting_materialThanks to Julia Wakefield–Houghton and Jelena Dinic for organizing and compering this evening’s Words for Birds at the SA State Library’s Words @ The Wall performance. Thanks too to Belinda Broughton, Louise MacKenna and Murray Alfredson for sharing their creative thoughts on our relationship with our avian cousins. I read bird-related poems from 2004 -2014:

Blue Wren


Hornbill in a cage, Sarawak

lerps and pardalotes

nor egrets


Storks, Regent’s Park

The Owl Speaks

Beyond Black and White (magpies)

Homing pigeon to a poet

Shearwaters and

Sparrow in an airport


Thanks to everyone who came along to listen.
