About a week ago I also had a couple of them in a small Hakea salicifolia. I've never seen them there before. Usually they go for the pine trees a few doors down the road.

Yesterday one bird spent nearly one hour in our garden munching on Hakea's fruits.  When I went to collect washing he glanced at me but continued to munch.  I sometimes see them flying over our house but this is the first time one came down to find food.  Is there any food shortage?
