Example text

Bowing to his local knowledge I followed him and his party. Despite extensive scanning through the flock no Dowitcher could be found. I watched as the original flock wheeled into flight and headed off towards their low-tide feeding grounds on the Gulf of St Vincent, a distinctly Dowitcher-shaped silhouette amongst them. It turns out the expert was no such thing. He had only been to see the Dowitcher once before and was pontificating on the basis of this limited information. Essentially I had dipped on the Short-billed Dowitcher because I had been taken in by a duffer (see DIP, DUFFER).

It didn’t either, because it was in fact a Double-banded Plover, which is seen far more at Werribee than either the Greater or the Lesser Sand Plover. He wasn’t a duffer because he had misidentified the bird; he was a duffer because he had so pompously fobbed off any suggestions that it could be something else. indd 56 30/10/07 9:05:54 AM DUFF GEN ever get Singing Bushlarks here,’ at the precise moment that a Singing Bushlark hops up on a fence post and starts singing its heart out. Warning: While you need to be wise to the duffer, ignore them completely at your own peril lest you become the duffer.

ACTION: Even though it is incredibly daggy and liable to attract the ire of anti-greenie types, it is very important to wear your binoculars at all times when out birding, particularly in rural areas, even when going into town. If locals see enough birders in their district – especially when they are spending money in the towns – it may eventually click that, without the birds, you and your money wouldn’t be there. It may just help them to reassess the value of conserving habitat. Well, that’s what I hope for, and why I put up with all the ‘poofter’ jibes.
