We've been having a lovely time in the garden lately. The weather has been sunny yet cool enough to stay out for most of the day, as opposed to summer where you really have to stay indoors between about 10am and 3pm.
The other morning we woke to a cacophany of Cockatoos having a feast in our front tree. This is usually a hot spot to hang out for the local birds but this particular morning we counted 17 Cockatoos in the tree at once! The little Guy and I sat on the front steps and watched them for ages, one landed on our electrical wires and did a loop-da-loop cause the wire was a bit slack, it was very funny. They also beheaded two of my three sunflowers, but that's ok!
The little Guy and I thought it would be nice to have some bird feeding equipment around the yard to encourage the birds to hang out. So that afternoon I bought a bird feeder with seed and a sunflower seed bell thingy. It took them a few days to find it but they finally found the sunflower seeds, as well as beheading my last sunflower.
