While doing a little research about bluebird houses just now, I ran across 
Arlene's name and decided to visit her website which I recalled as being: 
nextbox.com.  Turns out, she's retiring that domain and now has her page 
at http://www.curiousnaturalist.com/. So, only a year late, here are a 
couple of links to Arlene Ripley's blog in which she writes of Doug's and 
her trip down under last January.

I saw this book recommended recently:

Seeing Trees: Discover the Extraordinary Secrets of Everyday Trees
by Nancy Ross Hugo. You can see parts of it here:
