Sorry We're Closed For Renovation by 

An Australian Eastern Rosella trying to find a nest for Spring. This birdhouse in my garden has had too many baby rosellas pulled from the nest by Indian Minors so we decided to shut the box. If I had built it a little deeper it would have been a lot safer.

In the meantime I have found plans here on the net on how to build a breeder box for wild Rosellas.

Got the bug!
Am I obsessive?
Camera shutter worn out!
Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?
Yes that’s me!

    Bloody Indian Minors! I hope the new house for the rosella’s works Mate.

  • Hi Al, I built a new one but they don’t like it, the silly birds all go to the house they can’t have. As soon as you modify it they don’t want that one.

    I was chatting to friends that breed them and you can buy these boxes at the markets for $15.00, I can’t build them for that. Might see if they will pick me up one. Apparently they put mesh inside for the young ones to climb up and out.

    You have beautiful colorful birds like that flying around free where you live? Freedom is a beautiful thing!!! Great capture Gabe…

  • Hi Lorraine, yes I have some pretty parrots visiting the garden, I go through a lot of seed but it’s a pleasure feeding these little beauties, they have such a beautiful song. One of my favourite birds.

    Good luck with the next model!

  • Hi Enivea, yes I’ve built another one but they don’t like it. Hubby tied it to the tree with metal straps and I think it now looks ugly but they don’t like it. Might have to change it again, they are the most fussy birds I swear, they only want the house they can’t have??? Yes go figure?

    Nice to see that you’re looking after our native birds Gabe. Top shot.

  • I’ve been building bird house now for about 10 years? I’ve had a few successes but quite a few failures, watching the baby birds being pulled out by the indian minors is pretty distressing but unfortunately I don’t own a pop gun, otherwise I swear I’d become a good shot! LOL!

    Thanks bud! :)
