Noongar Season 

Djeran

April / May - Cool and pleasant - Ant Season

As the Season changes to Djeran, the cool nights bring dew in the early mornings. Winds are lighter and swing from the south west. Fishing continues, but people begin to migrate back to the wetland areas. Hunting increases, mainly for emus and turtles. The women collect bulbs and seeds from zamias and bulrushes. Djerann is the time of the stunning red flowering gums and the red 'rust' and seed cones forming on the male and female sheoaks. Banksia flowers blossom, providing nectar for mammals, birds and flying ants emerge.
