The Silence of the Desert in the City

Sitting on the back deck this evening, listening to an orchestra! Green Tree Frogs (Litoria caerulea) (well established in the garden),
Cicardas (insects in the order Hemiptera, suborder Auchenorrhyncha, now in the superfamily Cicadoidea)(by the thousand in trees in the garden and beyond,
Fruit Bats (Pteropus poliocephalus) (screaming and crashing into the ancient persimmon (Diospyros kaki) tree)
fruit bats
and Noisy Miner birds (Manorina melanocephala) hunting insects.

Laus deo!
