  • Feeding birds

    I bought coconut shell filled with suet peanuts etc from home bargains at 49p each I hung them from a trellis the Robin's and blue **** love them,love blackbirds they pop in the garden looking for seeds I dont mind them singing for hours,its the wood pigeons that are annoying when they start cooing early hours when you are woken up by them

    I love birds and it's always nice to see them in the garden, they enjoy using the bird bath which is always entertaining to watch

            Re: Feeding birds

            One of the grandparents bought my sons a Bird Book recently, so we've been checking off the birds in our garden for a while. We used to give our food scraps to our chickens, but as we don't have those anymore we feed them to the crows, there's a family of three that used to nest in a palm tree we had to get removed so they still come to visit. they're very noisy but i like them.
            Other birds we get are: Kookaburras, Doves (a family nest under next door's solar panels), magpies, mynas (common and Indian), blue faced honeyeater, noisy friarbird, butcherbirds. Sometimes we get Gallah's, Cockatoos, Rainbow Laurikeets and the like fly over.

            We've also had an owl on our deck one night.
