  1. Long-tailed tits are delightful little birds, but sadly I rarely ever see any! xx

  2. One of the best things about Australia is the birds. I've had cockatoos, lorikeets and galahs in my backyard. It's fantastic.

  3. I'm very jealous! I would love to see the unusual birds in Australia.

    The birds are okay in England (I love the English robin!) but I miss the colourful birds from Minnesota such as the cardinals, blue jays, hummingbirds, and the Baltimore Oriole.
