    We feed the birds in our garden. From the seed we put out we had a good little plot of wheat over the summer.

    Need to get some more suet pellets now the weather is changing

    The Rainbow Lorikeets and Green Parrots, get stuck into the nectar in the flowers of the Golden Wattle and other flowering trees, full of sugary goodness for them.

    The Lorikeets like a bit of bread as well, as did the young Butcher bird.
