House Sparrow... I don't see as many of these lovely birds as I should.
They are still on the Red List in the UK.

Cute feeder. There doesn't seem to be any shortage of House Sparrows on this side of the Atlantic, we could send you some.

I now am having quite a number every day in my back garden to feed. They come for a chat in the Holly bush everyday in the front garden.

Hard to believe that a bird that is this adaptable can be in decline.

Good to see yours are doing well!

The swallow in ny picture is a different species to the UK one - which is called the Barn Swallow else where. A Barn Swallow in Australia would be a really good bird.

Pretty sparrow! I like your feeder. We have many sparrows around here, but I've never seen them eating suet.

Love that he has his beak open...you don't often catch birds in mid-note!
