Lovely birds. Here are a few more:
Two eggs in a nest

we have a pair that have been living in our back yard going on three years, we call them the chooks, as soon as i walk into the back yard they fly down to see if im throwing out the older seed from my pet Cockatiels, its a regular thing now and they have become very used to me.

Lost count of the many chicks they have raised and fledged, i have also lost count of the chicks that fell from their crappy nest also :confused:
