Birdwatchers take stock of the bird population in the days following severe weather in the Top End.
'Birding' catching on among new generation of nature buffs

That’s what makes it a hotspot.” In the case of the white-throated needletail, which is listed as threatened in Victoria, the species migrates to Australia’s eastern seaboard ahead of the chilly Northern Hemisphere winters.The bird’s arrival in Darwin, Mr Gardiner said, suggested it was in the process of returning home to breed, perhaps to southern China or the Himalayas.”So it’s quite interesting that we’ve actually snagged a few of them this time around on the back of the cyclone,” he said.Others however can be less lucky and require the intervention of wildlife carers to finish their intercontinental journeys.

As an array of exotic birds make their yearly migrations, local birdwatchers can act as a buffer between them and Mother Nature, taking stock of the bird population and notifying carers if any need help.”We’re after mostly any rare seabirds or specifically at Lee Point it’s known as a place for some vagrants, particularly things like gulls and swallows,” Mr Gardiner said.”But we’ve also had some subspecies of peregrine falcon from Asia come through here recently.

Mandy Hall was also called out to a possum with a suspected spine fracture on a rural property. Photo:
The rescued possums will be taken to a nearby veterinary clinic for examination. “They just need to sit in the box, relax, get hydrated and start to feel better.”Questions over biosecurityMs Hall also works for one of two local volunteer organisations overseen by the NT Government’s wildlife body.In the days after the cyclone she was called to a rural property where a mother possum’s spine may have been broken by a falling tree.Where larger incidents involving wildlife are handled by Parks and Wildlife, individual ones call upon this network of volunteers.Ms Hall had to capture the possum and its baby before taking it in for assessment at a nearby vet clinic.The volunteers and the Government occasionally have rivalling aims, such as the need to rehabilitate an endangered bird and the need to eliminate a biosecurity risk.”So if a bird is sick rather than injured or exhausted and starved, a sick bird is obviously going to be something that might carry a disease that we don’t have here in Australia yet,” Ms Hall said. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
The turbid, muddy ocean waters post cyclone mean birds can often have trouble finding the fish they subsist on.Additionally, they have also been found having ingested fishing hooks and facing a slow, painful death.”If I get an injured seabird it’s very, very critical,” Ms Hall said.The birds are strangers to human contact and the fact they are even able to be approached is a sign of extreme weakness and lethargy.Ms Hall captures and rehabilitates them, often in warm, dark and quiet hospital-grade boxes. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
Carried off course by monsoonal windsThe same winds that bring birds to Darwin can also set their demise in motion.Wildlife carers have been vigilantly looking out for rare and endangered seabirds in distress. “When you’re watching a bird fly at the beach, even a seagull, you’ll notice that they don’t flap very often; they’ll spread their wings and they’ll ride with where the wind takes them,” wildlife carer Mandy Hall said. “Anything can turn up at any time. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
“We will bring them into care, put them in a seclusion box, rehydrate over the first 24 hours and then slowly stomach tube some energy diet into the birds to get them going,” she said.”They don’t have any visual stimulation; they don’t need to expend any energy unnecessarily. It’s a balmy morning in the days after Cyclone Marcus, and as chainsaws descend on fallen trees a group of locals descend on beaches to observe damage of a different sort.The Lee Point coastal reserve is the third or fourth area the birdwatchers have visited this week, and earlier expeditions have provided an interesting window into Top End birdlife.Marc Gardiner, who regularly makes the three-hour trip from Katherine, said he had sighted a bird that had not been recorded in the Top End for more than 10 years.”What we’ve seen on the back of the cyclone is some rarities like the white-throated needletail which haven’t been recorded in the Northern Territory since about 2005.”

Being without power for several days also meant Ms Hall had to bin some of the foods and other miscellanea she would use to rehabilitate birds.A black kite with damaged tail feathers, for example, will require a transplant with feathers taken from a dead bird.She does not have any on hand but vows to take the bird of prey in nonetheless.”Some of these birds are endangered species and need protection and are protected federally, so it’s really important that these animals do get picked up.”Without her work, she said, most of the seabirds would almost certainly die. “But with these big monsoonal conditions where this weather system is several hundred kilometres long, it’s bringing birds in and sucking them into the weather system and bringing them with it as it moves along.”Ms Hall, who specialises in seabirds and birds of prey, is one of the people birdwatchers call upon to rehabilitate their feathered friends when they turn up soggy, exhausted and starved on the shores following wild weather. “It’s really important to quarantine any animal that would come in that would have any suspicion whatsoever of being unwell.”

Cheat Codes – Put Me Back Together (feat. Kiiara) (Lyric Video)

[Verse 1]
I never met nobody
Who sees the stars the way you do
Nobody that can love me
When I’m stumbling ’round the room
You put your hands on my body
And you give me that room
And I know that you got me
When I’m falling into you
[Chorus]
You take me high when I’m dropping low
And you show me places I never know
Even when we just running ’round town getting stoned
Boy, you put me back together again
A Coca-Cola Hennessey
Everybody says you’re no good for me
But you’re my fucked up remedy
Boy, you put me back together again
[Post-Chorus]
Put me back together again
[Verse 2]
When you’re laying with me on the car hood
Sharing such a sweet dream
You make me feel so classy
Like I’m an L.A. queen
You don’t care that I’m broken
You don’t care that I’m me
You just say that I’m golden
Like the cheese of this piece
[Chorus]
You take me high when I’m dropping low
And you show me places I never know
Even when we just running ’round town getting stoned
Boy, you put me back together again
A Coca-Cola Hennessey
Everybody says you’re no good for me
But you’re my fucked up remedy
Boy, you put me back together again
[Post-Chorus]
Put me back together
[Chorus]
You take me high, I’m dropping low
And you show me places I never know
Even when we just running ’round town getting stoned
Boy, you put me back together again
A Coca-Cola Hennessey
Everybody says you’re no good for me
But you’re my fucked up remedy
Boy, you put me back together again
[Outro]
Boy, you put me back together again
Boy, you put me back together again

Sigrid – Raw (Live)

[Verse 1]
If I show I’m fragile
Would you go ahead and find somebody else? No, I just wanna be, no, I just wanna be
I just wanna be raw
Arrest me if I hurt you
But no apologies for being me
[Chorus]
I just wanna be pure
You know I’m terrible at putting up a show, oh
That’s what you wanted me for? And if I act too tough, know that I care ’bout you
I’m honest, no offense
[Pre-Chorus]
No, I could never fake it
Like players always playing
Arrest me if I hurt you
But no apologies for being me
[Chorus]
I just wanna be pure
You know I’m terrible at putting up a show, oh
That’s what you wanted me for? So I get pissed off when you ask me to be more
Oh, I just wanna be raw
Oh, I just wanna be raw
[Bridge]
That’s what you wanted me, that’s what you wanted me
That’s what you wanted me for? So I get pissed off when you ask me to be more
Oh, I just wanna be raw
Oh, I just wanna be raw
[Verse 2]
Keeping up appearances
But sometimes, all we need’s a little break
Regret the stupid shit I say
I hope that you forgive me any day
[Pre-Chorus]
No, I could never fake it
Like players always playing
Arrest me if I hurt you
But no apologies for being me
[Chorus]
I just wanna be pure
You know I’m terrible at putting up a show, oh
That’s what you wanted me for? So I get pissed off when you ask me to be more
Oh, I just wanna be raw
Oh, I just wanna be raw
I just wanna be raw

Hillsong Worship – So Will I (100 Billion X)

[VERSE 1]
God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light
[CHORUS 1]
And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapour of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I
[VERSE 2]
God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice
[CHORUS 2]
And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I
[BRIDGE]
If the stars were made to worship so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high so will I
If the wind goes where You send it so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times
[VERSE 3]
God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride
On a hill You created
The light of the world
Abandoned in darkness to die
[CHORUS 3]
And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done
Every part designed in a work of art called love
If You gladly chose surrender so will I
I can see Your heart
Eight billion different ways
Every precious one
A child You died to save
If You gave Your life to love them so will I
[TAG]
Like You would again a hundred billion times
But what measure could amount to Your desire
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind

I know that dress is karma, perfume regret, yeah
You got me thinking ’bout when you were mine, ooh
And now I’m all up on ya, what you expect? What are you doin? What are you doin’ to me? What are you doin’, huh? What are you doin’, huh? Yeah
But you’re not coming home with me tonight
[Chorus]
You just want attention, you don’t want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
Yeah, you just want attention, I knew from the start
You’re just making sure I’m never gettin’ over you (over you)
[Bridge]
What are you doin’ to me? What are you doin’, huh? What are you doin’ to me? What are you doin? [Chorus]
You just want attention, you don’t want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
Yeah, you just want attention, I knew from the start
You’re just making sure I’m never gettin’ over you, oh

Kodaline – Follow Your Fire

[Verse 2]
The time we stole your daddy’s car
And drove around till’ it got dark
We slept outside in Phoenix Park
We couldn’t get enough
We promised that we’d never part
On a tree, under the stars
We carved our names into the bark
To be there when we’re not
[Pre-Chorus]
We had the songs that we sang along to
You had the moves to make me dance with you
I always saw you reaching and catching stars
We had the thing that everyone wanted
Hung on your sleeve, you wore your heart on it
Did you get out I’m wondering where you are? (Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
[Outro]
Did you follow your, follow your fire? (Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Did you follow your fire? (Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
Oh, oh, oh
[Bridge]
I remember you and me
Back when we were 17
Drinking, kissing in the street
We couldn’t get enough
[Chorus]
We had the songs that we sang along to
You had the moves to make me dance with you
I always saw you reaching and catching stars
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
We had the thing that everyone wanted
Hung on your sleeve, you wore your heart on it
Did you get out I’m wondering where you are? [Verse 1]
I remember you and me
Back when we were 17
Drinking, kissing in the street
We couldn’t get enough
I see you layin’ there with me
Like my missing puzzle piece
Dreaming of what we could be
We couldn’t make you up
[Pre-Chorus]
We had the songs that we sang along to
You had the moves to make me dance with you
I always saw you reaching and catching stars
We had the thing that everyone wanted
Hung on your sleeve, you wore your heart on it
Did you get out I’m wondering where you are? (Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
[Chorus]
We had the songs that we sang along to
You had the moves to make me dance with you
I always saw you reaching and catching stars
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
We had the thing that everyone wanted
Hung on your sleeve, you wore your heart on it
Did you get out I’m wondering where you are? (Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
[Chorus]
We had the songs that we sang along to
You had the moves to make me dance with you
I always saw you reaching and catching stars
(Did you follow your, follow your fire?)
We had the thing that everyone wanted
Hung on your sleeve, you wore your heart on it
Did you get out I’m wondering where you are?

Heaven, is it as wonderful? Is it as wonderful? Heaven, is it as beautiful as you? Heaven, is it as beautiful as you? Heaven, is it as beautiful as you? So what if one night is never enough? Is it as wonderful? So what if I’m such a sucker for pleasure? So what if one night is never enough? [Bridge]

Doja Cat – Candy lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can name a couple ways, baby, this sh*t might go
You just might forget that this was what you’re getting high for
And it might do the things to him, I mean the guy who
He’s the one who’s sweet enough, who’ll shoot to make that high note
[Pre-Chorus]
And it’s such a typical thing
Running over a millioner
Running through a difficult place
You don’t need no blood on your hands, no
[Chorus]
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
[Verse 2]
I can be your sugar when you’re fiending for that sweet spot
Put me in your mouth, baby, and eat it ’till your teeth rot
I can be your cherry, apple, pecan, or your key lime
Baby I got everything and so much more than she’s got
[Pre-Chorus]
And it’s such a typical thing
Running over a million [?]
Running through a difficult place
You don’t need no blood on your hands, no
[Chorus]
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
[Bridge]
Sugar coated, lies unfolded
You still lick the wrapper
It’s addictive, you know this
But you still lick the wrapper
Sugar coated, lies unfolded
You still lick the wrapper
It’s addictive, you know this
But you still lick the wrapper
[Chorus]
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real cherry, know that it ain’t real cherry
She’s just like candy, she’s so sweet
But you know that it ain’t real, know that it ain’t real
