Hi all,

Rathdowne Street in Carlton North, an inner Melbourne suburb, is planted
with Plain Trees along the curbs and a variety of Oak tree with small round
acorns in the median strip. About 2 weeks ago a flock of about 40 Galahs
arrived and started feeding on the acorns and also on the round seed balls
on the Plain trees.

Over the 2 weeks they have been working up and down the street cleaning up
all the acorns and stripping the seed balls from the Plain trees. It is
very pleasant to hear them calling and talking as they feed and the coffee
drinkers and shoppers are all commenting on the "cockies" that have
arrived. It is certainly a major improvements on having the pigeons, and
nice addition to my house list.
