    Chestnut breasted Mannikins

    These two decided to enjoy the bird food I left out. I guess one is the cockatoo while the other one eats?

    Re: Chestnut breasted Mannikins

    A cocky mannikin now there's a strange mix.

    Little feeding stations are a great way of attracting birds to the backyard. I have one which works very well for all the wrong type of birds (starlings.. sparrows etc), but hopefully when all the native trees I have come into flower i'll get more of the more interesting
    ones.

    No cocky mannikins this time around, just two hungry ones enjoying breakfast.

    Haha, it looks like one is eating while another one is working as a safeguard!
