Artist's Description

Eyre Peninsula is such an arid landscape that many of the trees are small and this is where the shorter Mallee species dominate. Powerhouses of optimism the Mallee carve out a life in the dry lands reaching with their multiple stemmed branches from their safe underground tubers. The mallee ecosystems even have their own associated ground-dwelling bird species, the Malleefowl, who survives scratching up insects, fruits and seeds to eat and spends every living moment hiding from foxes and feral cats. Malleefowl are true Master Landscapers. They scratch and rearrange kilo after kilo of fallen mallee leaf-litter and soil to make giant mounded incubating ground nests for the female Malleefowl to lay 30 or more eggs. To see a Malleefowl on Eyre Peninsula is quite a rare and special thing but to see the mallee can be an everyday occurrence if you so wish. I love looking up into the mallee canopy and hearing the woodland birds come in to feed on the blossoms or seeing them acrobatically hop hoping from one branch to the next, looking for new nest sites or gleaning insect snacks. Right through to the closing of the day when all there’s left to see is the silhouette of those fine mallee trees.
