"I would like permission to use this photo in a non-for profit aboriginal language poster I am working on. Do you have this image in high resolution? The poster will be in Alyawarr, a language of central Australia, and it will be about birds that signal things in the environment. We will acknowledge all photographers and are happy to send you a copy of the poster.Look forward to hearing from you Myf Turpin"
Of course I was happy to oblige and sent of the higher resolution picture. To be honest I'd forgotten all about it so when the postman knocked and gave me a "tube" from Australia I had no Idea what would be in it.
I was impressed by this great poster of Australian Birds, each with a little "story" about it. The poster is about 60cm by 84cm and is very eye-catching. The posters are produced by the Cultural Signs Project, Charles Darwin University. The posters in four native languages can be seen at the university Charles Darwin University WEB site.
It's a bit difficult to read the text this size, this is what it says "The Owlet-nightjar makes a whooshing sound. I criticises people as they go past at night. It sees them out of the tree hollow and mocks or criticises that person".
