Bruce has decided to taper off the kooka meat feedings.

I thought it would be fun to combine his putting out the meat today, and the first kooka arriving!

Bruce's back doorway has been a haven for a poor storm battered Galah. S/He was having a snooze there yesterday.

The Galah (previous post) seems to be quite solitary, avoiding the others in the local flock - or even individual Galahs, although it seems OK when the doves are there.

Bruce, I did see the little galah yesterday, just once. He came in and drove away the hoard of pigeons and ate and left....only there for about 5 minutes...would have been morning your time, about an hour after you had said good morning and then went off to do other things. :yes:
