4 differnet parrots on our feeder!

Hi eveyone
I had to share this - 4 different parrots on our new feeder at once. Sorry about the poor lighting but the photos were worth getting. I also took some photos of spotted turtle doves - another regular in our yard.


Well done Birdgirl I never tire of seeing your backyard pics.
You are so lucky,its like one big natural aviary.

Yes, I like to sit and watch them, if I have the time, especially in the afternoon. Here are the preceeding photos, where the rainbow lorikeet arrived and booted the galah off the bottom tray (as expected!)

You've got an awesome backyard to have all those parrots visiting it.

What is the parrot on the swing?

The parrot on the swing is an eastern rosella. Sorry it's hard to recognise, but I just had a moment to photograph the 4 different types on the feeder at the same time.
They've been coming in a lot lately and we are hoping they'll nest. We had at least 2 years when they nested in autumn as well as spring, but then had to take down the box for a couple of years because of endless problems with indian mynas and starlings.
The backyard is just an ordinary sized one in a suburb. We have two gum trees that I think are the main reasons the birds come in - they like to be up high. I have also planted mostly grevilleas that flower year round, banksias and bottlebrushes.
