Oh goergeous. I love your native birds.

We only get sparrows and blackbirds in our yard.You get the most beautiful visitors.
I'm tempted to pull your leg with a wordless comment. I know from Elephant Child's blog (https://myjustsostory.blogspot.com/) of your many beautiful Australian birds, but one species that you don't have (and that I know I would miss terribly) is the hummingbird. I learned on a nature show that, when it comes to fish anyway, warm seas mean greatly enhanced color, and it would seem to be so with birds on land also.
I’d love to see a hummingbird.
I wish you could too. By way of consolation... In 1986, Peggy (my wife) and I moved to America's Pacific Northwest from its Deep South region. One of the joys of the Deep South was a brightly-colored red bird called a Cardinal. I never even cared that much about birds, but I soon realized that I really missed Cardinals. I think it likely that you would find America's birds a poor substitute for all the brightly colored birds that you enjoy, but I'm sure you would get a kick out of hummingbirds because they tend to have iridescent colors that appear to change with movement. Also, they regularly stand still in the air, and fly straight up, and fly straight down, and fly straight backwards. Their only drawback (from a human perspective) is that most of them are awfully small, and there aren't a lot of different species. They are easily attracted to red feeders (they like the color red, and they go for the high calories in sugar water), and they are awfully territorial, which means that they dive-bomb one another.
