Feeding Birds in my Garden

Every Day in the morning the Kookaburras come to be fed.

I used to feed about a dozen Butcher Birds and two magpies. Then the magpies started nesting and became unfriendly towards the other birds.

Then they chased away the timid curlews who were also coming down below on the grass.

Soon all I had was three magpies. Junior joined the party.

I started feeding them all by hand, to mainly stop one bird taking control and eating all the food. This was great fun, the magpies would sit on the verandah and wait their turn while I chatted to them and watched their interaction with each other.
