Diamond Firetails Hanging In

The Diamond Firetail is nearly extinct in the Mt Lofty Ranges & environs.

Last year we had a pair on our property for some months beginning about March. This year we've been fortunate to have a pair visit this week. It's wonderful to know that the skin of their teeth is enabling them to hang on. For how much longer is diabolically problematic given the horrendous housing developments, with their native bird-destroying gardens, that's occuring in the ranges. Ms Woko & I will continue promoting the growth of native grasses to enhance the resilience of the skin on the Diamond Firetails' teeth. We live in hope!
