Nice to see the variety of birds on your cam, Bruce!

Yesterday I just managed to see this little family of kookaburras come for the meat

Image

They arrived early again today, as soon as Bruce had put out some meat, but I didn't get all three this time. (Should've waited a couple minutes longer!)

Image

The doves and pigeons were there for a while, then a lone Rosella, which left abruptly. This is why:-

First time I've seen Corellas there - but they sure keep the other birds away!

That blue, wide-eyed innocent look is all camouflage!

This magpie wasn't too shy to grab a chunk of meat from Bruce's hand, but it was too quick for me to capture the exact moment it grabbed it!

The Galahs visited Bruce's yard again! It looked like a pair - Mr. & Mrs. Galah!

They were a little uneasy when the Magpie arrived, but were determined to stay and feed on the seed.
