    This thread is for pics of animal visitors to your garden that are not pets :)

    Here's one to kick off with, a Crimson Rosella at our bird bath.

    Stunning. Beautiful colurs :)

    My photo of the two fat pigeons in our plum tree is maybe a little underwhelming.

    I think pigeons are beautiful. There is such a variety of subtle colouring.

    I'm a champion of sparrows too, they also have a diversity of patterning.

    Our native birds are interesting rather than exotic.

    How fantastic...

    I fear all I'll manage is an urban fox, but I'll have a go....

    Today we had some King Parrots. They are either both females or both juveniles (as the males have a bright red head and chest as well as a red tummy).
