its the same in Northern Europe. Feeding garden birds is an important way for people to connect with nature and a deeply cultural activity in those parts and it brightens up winter. Australian garden birds don't need feeding in the same way, though access to water in dry times is very useful.
However, I do wonder about the cultural connection ordinary Australians have with their wildlife, My feeling is that by international standards I know it is not great and it is not getting better. While feeding bread to the 'ducks' at the local lake is not the best at least the people concerned are interacting with wildlife. More people are hunting Pokemons than birds there now.
