Yesterday our garden was visited by a pair of rare Black Cockatoos. We have seen them flying over before, but they have never paid a visit till now. They feasted on the seed pods of one of the native trees.
Rainbow lorikeets, rosellas, pink and grey galahs and sulphur-crested cockatoos eat seed from the bird feeder near our back deck whenever we fill it. It lasts a few minutes! I often wonder how they know it is full, we are not regular in filling it up. But as soon as we do, in swoop the birds. The kookaburras are not interested in seeds, but they sit on the fence and watch, and laugh...and the belbirds tinkle in the distance. I am so lucky to live in a city where native birds still co-exist with people.
