Unfortunately not in my garden.

I was on holiday in Denmark all the photos were taken from the verandah of the cottage I was staying in.

Also the new birds I Ihave posted.

From my verandah I was entertained by a family of red winged Wrens most of the day. Western Rosellas would come every afternoon to feed on whatever was around. There was a couple of Dusky Woodswallows, but I couldn't get near enough for a decent shot.

The usual entourage of Gallahs, Twenty Eights, Magpies, Crows, tree Martins, a square tailed Kite, and several birds i did not recognise, they were in the forest and I just could not get a decent view.

These little fellows used to visit several times a day. 

They fed on some of the grasses planted in the garden.

This delightful bird had buit a nest in the planter box on the verandah. The planter is in a previous pic of the Red winged wren.To access the holes entrance he would fly between my legs as I sat on a chair next to his nest hole. The entrance was where the bottom plank of the planter had sagged leaving a 30mm gap.

Yes there are some wonderful birds.

I did find them very shy. The pics were taken from my varandah, but in the forest I could hear plenty of birdsong, but see very little.
