Hello all,
Just went to the National Zoo and Aquarium and apart from the many bored and depressed animals there were quite a few wild birds around feasting on the feed. Amongst them 4 Double-barred Finches and the tamest wild Red-browed Firetails I've ever come across (They allowed approach down to 20 cm! photos to follow :)).

Introduced species were also evident with large numbers of Starling, Mynah and House Sparrows seen...
