Australian Native Birds
I live in a newly established suburb in Canberra, ACT, Australia. Around my home I have planted all native species of shrubs and trees to attract the native birds to our home. This is like having an aviary to sit and oberve the birds, without the avairy. In the backyard I have created a stand for the birds to feed on a small handfull of sunflower seeds. (Using sunflower seeds stops the sparrows also feeding, and so reduces the contribution to the spread of feral birds.) Eventially, it has attracted many native species and they all meet at the bird feeder. For this reason its called the 'Bird Pub'! Six species of parrot aggregate at the Bird Pub, arguing and squabbling over the small handfulls of seed I put out on a semi-regular basis. This collection is a small selection of the native Australian birds I see each morning. A number of the birds in this collection are from the local bushland.
A small note about feeding parrots sunflower seeds: Too many sunflower seeds for captive parrots can cause fatty liver disease. They get this because they are captive, and their diet is completely controlled by humans. This is like too much cholesterol in humans - not so good. Wild birds have the opportunity to freely choose their diet, and indeed, after about 10 minutes the birds you see here usually fly away to do that.
