One of the goals of our backyard native garden is to attract native birdlife. The early signs are that it’s working.
We now have a regular group of visiting birds, including two nesting pairs of kookaburras (shown above), and a friendly flock of rainbow lorikeets (below). Add to that the usual noisy miners, native pidgeons, ibis, currawongs and crows.
Having a birdbath definitely helps, and our flowering bushes should also attract birds, once they’ve grown a little bit more. So hopefully the list of local birds should continue to grow!
