The cockies go for the macadamias from the house across the road at my grandparents, and every morning there is a crunch and a 'Donk', and you know the rest

Unfortunately the cockies here don't use the trees; the park near mine is popular with dogs and is overrun with miner birds.

I always love when the lories come to the feeder cause the cockatoos are scared of the lorikeets. Whenever I hear loud squaking i know it's the lories chasing away the cockatoos!

The only thing I have ever seen scaring a lorikeet off the feeder is a White headed pigeon, all they do is just land on the feeder before the lorikeets take off

It was 35 here on Friday. Pleasant Spring day, though as I forgot my sunscreen I got a bit pink. Birds unaffected.

My birds are ready to rock and roll into summer
Might buy myself a cheap freezer to store the grass seed for winter which I will pick this coming summer
Thanks
