August - September

As the weather started to get ‘warmer’ Noongar groups moved to the drier Guildford and Canning-Kelmscott areas. This calmer weather allowed the bush to rejuvenate and plants begin to bloom.Eggs from water fowl, emus, swans and ducks were collected. Tortoises, berries and roots also supplemented the larger game of kangaroo, emu and ringtail possum. Colours of this season are black, blue and green.
