Whip Crack Sound Effect:
The whip crack sound effect made by Lyrebirds is actually the call of the Whipbird.
I have painted the Whipbird that you can see here in this photo.
This is a timber lazy susan which I have on our dining room table.
I was inspired to paint the Whipbird which is indigenous to Australia because he is a perching bird we have commonly in our area. I hear them lots but rarely see them.
The Whipbird in “my dreaming” sense is around to encourage me to “get cracking” with life and reminds us that if you aren’t prepared to do what it takes to realize dreams and reach your own potential then no one else will!
The Whipbirds forage in pairs. They are easily recognizably by their white neck stripes, black throat and white tipped tail feathers.
We have 3 species of Whipbird:
Eastern Whipbird, Western Whipbird and Mallee Whipbird.
I hope you like my painting
Spirit Meaning of the Whipbird:
Whipbird asks that you look at your life and check that you are in control. Whipbird primes us to “just know” what needs to be done and how, without being forced or cajoled.
It ensures we truly comprehend the power of the moment; the power that comes from realizing that, with commitment and effort we are destined for a productive future.
