The Singing Garden by C J Dennis

In reading a book on the "Selected Verse of C J Dennis", the famous Australian author of "The Sentimental Bloke" I came across something I had not known and it was highlighted by his biographer,A.H. Chisholm.

A H Chisolm was a prolific Australian writer who also was a keen bird expert.

C J Dennis was a very keen birdwatcher and he wrote a book called "The Singing Garden" which is full of wonderful pen pictures of Australian Birds.

It is not in print anymore but I discovered a wonderful website for birders that has the whole text available to enjoy.
Here is the link below.

If you want to hear some Australian bird song then you can't go past "The Listening Earth" website of Andrew Skeoch and Sara Koschak.

So read the text at Bushpea and listen to the birds on Listening Earth.
