Eastern Rosellas on our back lawn

 
After the rain I spotted about 20 birds on our back lawn trying to get the worms that had surfaced. My favourite type is the eastern rosella.
A close up of what they look like. The Eastern Rosella has a red head, neck and breast, with yellowish to greenish upper parts and distinctive white cheek patches. It is 30cm in size and eats seeds, fruits, buds, flowers, nectar and insects.
Its range is Queensland to Victoria and south-eastern South Australia, mainly in woodlands, grasslands, farmlands, parks and gardens. They are often kept as pets and can be trained to whistle a wide repertoire of tunes and may even learn to speak a few words or phrases.

As you can see above, we get many types of birds in backyard. There is also a small black bird on the left top and a pigeon on the right top. A project I would like my husband to build is a bird feeder than can be hung up high with a removable feed tray. This way my golden retriever won’t get the beautiful birds.
