Hi Lisa,

We have friends up Upwey way (actually in Selby but couldn't resist the alliteration) and the number of parrots and kookaburras near their place is a joy...

Hi, unfortunately we also have lots of cockatoos (actually too many) they appear to have chased a lot of rosellas away, and they can be very distructive.

I've heard they like western red cedar verandas and tear them to bits. I've seen where they have attacked wattles for a grub inside, and they rip more than half the trunk off so the top falls off.

Yep. Cockatoos destroyed one of our 130-year-old red cedar window shutters.

Calilasseia, we've noticed that there are bird lovers in the forum, we live at the foot hills of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges in victoria Australia and have some lovely birds around,the King parrots are particularly beautiful, and it's lovely to hear the Kookaburras laughing .

Sorry about the delay in replying, been up to my neck in JavaScript programming. Smiley

When my brother John was alive (emigrated to Australia in 1967, settled in Brisdane, then became a roadtrain driver and in his time, saw pretty much everything Australia has to offer), he told me about the fun aspects of living there, such as having Cockatoos and Rosellas at your bird table. Trouble being that although they're gorgeous to look at, they make an apocalyptic din when they gather in numbers. John used to joke that if you had Rosellas turning up at your bird table, you never needed to buy an alarm clock. Cheesy

Thanks to him, I learned why 'Galah' has been co-opted into Australian slang to describe someone who can't stop talking. Smiley

Then of course there are Emus. Which provide a hilarious piece of history. Namely, that the Australian Army went to war against Emus in the 1920s ... and lost. Cheesy

Though if you want to see truly outlandish birds, you have to travel north to Papua New Guinea, and check out the Birds of Paradise. One of which makes a noise like a video game flying saucer when it's in the mood for baby making.

Hi Herry, welcome to the forum.

I know Leeds well, since I was born and brought up in Yorkshire - in a little place called Conisbrough, near Doncaster, famous for its Norman castle. I have relatives living in Cleckheaton.

I hope you get lots of enjoyment from both the Chi puzzles and the forum.
