Welcome to Makuru
Here on Noongar boodjar (country), the season of Makuru is nearly upon us - the coldest and wettest time of the year, usually coinciding with June-July.
Blue and purple flowers will start to emerge and animals begin to pair up in preparation for breeding next season. In particular, keep an eye out for 'wardongs' (crows) flying in pairs, and suspiciously quiet as they cease their cawing for a mate.
You might also spot more 'mali' (black swans) on our lakes and rivers as they prepare to nest and breed.
Post your pairs on Wild About Freo's iNaturalist page and contribute to our collection, over 780 observations and counting!
