  • 'Among the bird species, the best-known are the gladdy-whingers, which lay their spotted eggs in basket nests in the booblow tree, and the flummywisters, a type of songbird usually seen in elm trees. In winter the young flummywisters wear warm underwear; to hear them singing as their mothers loosen their buttons in spring is a very good omen.'
