Yesterday afternoon in our garden.
It's the end of autumn here so the birds are having a feast on the seeds.

Cool shots. A sight like that in a tree over here would cause traffic accidents. :)

LOL Mitch. Reminds me that when we were over in Australia 18 months ago I nearly crashed the car because a flock of cockatoos flew overhead and landed in a big tree!! Fortunately when we saw a whole bunch of rainbow lorikeets the car was stationary!!

Great shots, particularly love the galah.

The only time I get to see birds like those around here is when i'm in a pet store. Must be so nice to see them wild.

Great pictures of some stunning birds. I can't imagine seeing such exotic looking birds in the wild. What a treat it must be! :D

While the birds are generally around most of the time, they will only be feeding in our garden for a couple of days each year.
We think it is amazing to see all the squirells when we have vacations in the UK or the USA so I guess each part of the world has its own attractions.
Thanks very much everybody for the nice comments.
