Fantastic.

Wonderful list of backyard birds for one day - what sort of trees do you have to attract so much variety?

Hi devster

i live on the central coast.  Lucky enough to live surrounded by the boudhi national park and hardys bay. So not much in the way of overcrowding of suburbia. 

Have a bird population that love the bush as well as water birds attracted to our fresh water creek and the  sea.  Beach and bay.  

I love nothing more than walking the dog every day and watching out for birds. 

Saw some new ones today   Just looking up. They looked like noisy minors but not the same.  Thinking maybe Lewins honey eater or yellow faced honey eater

Hi. Have a range of natives.  Lilli pillies. Bottle brush.  Gum trees and bottle brush.    But surrounded by national park and bay  and beach.    

Very lucky the local area is quiet and bird friendly.  

You have to. Google Killcare and hardys bay.   Beautiful place to live and enjoy all the birds that enjoy this place too
