Hi D. Isn't it great to see them in the garden? The multi coloured juveniles will visit also. Only the rosellas, king parrots and the &%@^%$# pigeons eat the wild bird seed. I think magpies and kookas are attracted by mince (and so are the ants) Happy Snapping New Year to you We are seeing in 09 in the Yarra Valley, perhaps taste some of our 08 picking. Cheers D see you for the zucchini Friday.

I'm so used to only seeing such incredible colored birds in cages that I forget they come from the wild first. What a beaut!

....keep the birdfeeder up high, mine hangs in a tree and I've given D the tip (that tabletop looked a bit tantalising for a cat!!!). I worried about my cat, but these particular birds always have someone on lookout anyway to sound a warning. H

Need new bird feeder, the one we got is really a weather station and bird feeder, but too small, B has put this up in tree now, we are not organised properly yet. Croydy cats wouldnt be mean.D

Cheers, Paul

Thanks Paul all new to me having them in my back garden, but loving it, they came again yesterday but I frightened them away, will have to be more careful. Dianne

Beautiful bird! You are so lucky to have one in your garden, I just love watching the birds in our yard.

Thanks Don it is great to watch them, especially when you get more than one at a time, they do add something special to your garden. Dianne

It is so beautiful! I want to borrow your birdfeeder!

Hi Jean the funny thing is the bird feeder that I got for Christmas is useless. This is the base of a pot plant and have just put it on the table in these shots, although since then my husband had it hanging in the tree, and we have another tall container on the table and they come to that, so all this time I thought I needed a bird feed, we can always improvise. So happy you are enjoying the photos. I will share. Thats what P. is all about. Best wishes, Dianne
