Birds in my Garden

Many years ago, after building our house, we turned our minds to planning our garden. The house block, which was about 2 acres in size, had no trees on it. It had been once part of a farm and had been used as grazing for dairy cows, then, ploughed over for planting potatoes.

We planted native trees and shrubs and now we are reaping the reward for our effort. The trees are filled with native birds and honeyeaters flock to the flowers.

This New Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae) was busy in the front garden getting his fill of nectar from the Kangaroo Paw plant.

These Superb fairy-wrens (Malurus cyaneus) are often seen early in the morning and late in the afternoon chasing insects to eat.

Galahs (Eolophus roseicapillus) visit the front garden where the feeders and bird bath keep them occupied.


Occasionally the Rainbow Lorikeets  (Trichoglossus haematodus) visit to join the Galahs at the feeder.
