These small birds have a cheeky behaviour in our yard. They run in short bursts across the ground and never seem to stop wagging their tails which they sometimes fan.

These litte birds visit our yard in the hundreds to feed on the gum tree flowers and Bottle Brush bracts.   They are very noisy just after dawn and just before dusk.

The Galah is another native parrot and they visit our yard in summer for a drink or to feed on our pre-ripe almonds.  They come in karge numbers, and are very noisy.

As pretty as these birds appear they are a pest.  They can be tamed and they visit our yard to feed.   They have a nest in a nearby Gum Tree so the numbers visiting vary from time to time.
