Early in the morning a few days ago, we saw what appears to be a fox, trotting across in front of Kim's place.  Foxes are an introduced species in Australia, and they are a big threat to Australian wildlife.  This one was carrying something that may or may not have been prey (it might have been its 'pup').

Galahs (as seen in previous posts) have now discovered Kim's feeders! 

They are not deterred by the other birds there - even the Lorikeets!

Kim's new camera takes wonderful, clear close up photos.  Kim posted these photos of the lorikeets visiting her feeder yesterday and feasting on an apple:

It wasn't long before a pair of Red Wattlebirds (honeyeaters) arrived and discovered the apple:

The other regular visitors who come often to the feeders for the seed are the colourful Crimson Rosellas - they arrived a bit later and Kim took more of these great close-ups:

The above photo is an adult with a young Rosella - we have been seeing many of these youngsters.

We saw many different creatures and birds in March.  Nice to see kangaroos close to Kim's and the night vision camera worked well when these two visited:

A pair of magpies dropped in, and the galah didn't fly off!

Below is a composite of a butcherbird that visited, landing on the railing then going to a feeder:

The galahs kept on coming:

... and a corella, which the remaining galah tolerated!

A lone corella seems to visit most days.  Below it is looking like it's losing a feather; the magpie was keeping an eye on it!

The galahs were not too concerned about the corella being there!

Kim added feeders and a seed ring and soon the birds decorated the tree - adding some colour!
