Waaaaaaaaa!
And I'm so happy I have goldfinches and cardinals!

Is he there all the time?  Is he noisy?

I'm with Nancy!  Moving to Australia! 
I can't believe that is in your backyard.  Right now there's a mourning dove at our feeder...not quite the same!

Ok, I love Australia and it's one of my 2 dream destinations (Ireland!!) but I'm way scared of birds. Those all just creep me out. I'd hide in my house if I saw those Pluvers crossing the street!!

LOL I'd hide too. Pluvers are very territorial and they swoop and attack like magpies do.

What part of Australia are you in?  Do you get galah, too? and fairy wrens?  and bee-eaters?

I was lucky enough to spend a semester on the Sunshine Coast... where we were awakened every morning by magpie larks, which "was really cool at first, tropical and such.  Then, you wonder why you didn't bring your shotgun."

I wouldn't want to live there permanently, but I definitely miss the colorful bird life!

One of my first memories from Aus was a flock of galah landing beside the bus taking us to Frasier Island, and the entire bus kind of shocked-wow-we're-in-Australia-this-is-so-cool gasping "GALAH!" 
There are SO MANY awesome birds in Australia.  I have a bad video somewhere of a red-tailed black cockatoo eating a fig while the wind whipped his perch up and down and he gave us curious, unconcerned looks over his dinner.  I was on vacation in Townsville.  Cockatoos were, among the American biology students, a completely acceptable reason to drop whatever you were doing and simply stare.

They are amazing photos. I too am in Australia and see the occasional galah, lorikeet and rosella, there is actually one on the nature strip next door who has met an unfortunate fate  :'( .
Growing up we used to have a flock of cockatoos fly right over our house every morning at the crack of dawn (oh the noise  :-\ )
