I just love Rainbows, we started to feed them here some years ago it was marvelous, until the Cockies turned up.......

Now we cant put anything out as the Cockies are right onto it.

Cockies grow to about 450mm long, once 1 arrives it tells its mates about the free feed.

If there is no feed they start to eat any woodwork around the place.
They are very smart and will revisit for months after the feed is no longer available.

That is a great bit of recycling. It looks like it was purpose built for the job.

We have swarms of Rainbow Lorikeets here in the Blue Mountains too. They are the juvenile delinquents of the bird world. We also have cockatoos, rosellas and king parrots and are regularly woken up by whip birds.

We also have satin bowerbirds and they are actually quite intelligent. We have a fig tree in a pot on our back deck and when it is fruiting we put a bird net over it. The bowerbirds will work in pairs. One will sit on the net and push it down so the other one can eat a fig through the net, then they will swap.

I once spent a weekend puttying up all the old sash windows in my house ready to repaint. The cockies turned up on Monday when we were at work and the little buggers picked all the putty out!
