They have even joined the Magpies at our place for a small helping of mince meat.

During the past three weeks four Red Wattlebirds have become regular visitors to our back yard. At first I thought they were migrants of passage but we notice them every couple of days as they enact what has become a fairly set routine of cavorting about on the clothes hoist then descending and hopping around on the ground before disappearing into a neighbour’s yard. So this morning I looked over the fence to see what they were doing and watched them feasting on bread strewn about by the resident children. I didn’t realise these large honeyeaters had a liking for farinaceous food.
