Hamilton Lake - Poem by Francis Duggan

On Hamilton lake where waterbirds do abound
In the largest body of water for many miles around
Even the diving musk duck seem plentiful there
Though they are considered to be rather rare
Moorhen, coot and black duck and Aussie pelican
The creatures that live independent of man
Silver gulls around tables where people do eat
Begging for scraps of food bread and fish, chips and meat
The graceful great egrets birds as white as snow
Though little about them I can claim for to know
Aloof from all others they seldom do pair
Larger than cattle egrets and for beauty few with them compare,
Ibis, white faced heron, black swan and the cormorants black and pied
So many species by or on Lake Hamilton do reside.
