Backyard visitors

Sitting outside in the mornings, the "thunk" on the verandah tin roof is constant. The Australian Ringnecks sit in the tree above and pick off the seed podded branches, dropping them on a regular basis. Sometimes, they sit on branches beyond the roof line and they fall to the ground. A little while later, some of the birds flutter down and continue their feeding.

They are joined by a variety of other birds coming to the ground to feed, among them are the Western Bowerbird, interestingly, eating the same seeds, and the Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater, which tends to go for the pods, but not the seeds themselves as far as I can tell.
