Parrot Cam!

Here’s something cool:


It’s a webcam of a bird feeder in Australia and a lot of the visitors appear to be Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, Galahs, rosellas and Australian magpies.

Just to beef up this post, I’ll add some photos of birds I’ve seen at my bird feeder. Living in Canada, I don’t get the big, dramatic parrots that can be attracted to feeders in Australia, but I’ve gotten quite a few interesting visitors. Just in my yard (in the city) I’ve seen juncos, House Sparrows, White-crowned Sparrows, Black-capped Chickadees, Downy Woodpeckers, nuthatches, Northern Flickers, Blue Jays, magpies, waxwings, Pine Siskins, House Finches, and Common Redpolls.

Northern Flicker stopping for some suet.

House Finch. This is a species introduced from Europe and they've only recently started showing up in northern Canada.

Red-breasted Nuthatch

Redpoll. These are tough birds and normally occur much farther north. In some years, they show up in Edmonton.
