    basil they have slowly accepted my presence with seed to bring them in.They are very wary at this stage though and come for the natural seed heads also.Eventually with a few generations they tame readily..

    Form yesteryear at another property i was on.

    Basil there is a big difference between being a tame bird and being just plain cheeky.
    This bloke I call a camp bandit. He knows from experience that he will get a free feed if he gets close to you and looks cute. I have seen him or another at this camp site quite a few times. I could hand feed this one. This pic is a bit dodgy as I'm not the photographer that John is.
