Skyfire traumatising Canberra birds?

By nthbit - 22 March 2009 7

The fireworks were cool, but pretty loud (I wasn’t anywhere near the lake, either).

I’ve heard that the fireworks can traumatise domestic animals… but is anyone else hearing a large flock of birds flying around the south side squawking?

I’ve never heard a single bird at this time of night, let alone a whole flock.

What’s Your opinion?

At least nobody can blame Todd Carney this time.

When the Canberra Day fireworks were on a few weeks ago a few friends and I were on the roof of the Canberra Centre just outside Dendy (having just finished watching the Watchmen and said friends having a smoke) and saw a huge flock of gulls flying about randomly and squawking, which we attributed to the fireworks that we could hear but not see startling them.

You see those birds heading back to the wetlands of an evening, if you’re having dinner at The Boathouse it’s quite a show, they are all heading the same way like fans to a rock concert.

Yep, it happens every single time there’s fireworks. The birds all roost for the night in the area around the Jerrabomberra Wetlands, from what I can judge, and then get disturbed and fly south whenever the fireworks start.
