The best thing I have ever done is to get rid of the front lawn and plant natives. The front garden has now grown a lot since the photo was taken, and the birds love my garden now. I live in suburbia and I am lucky that I have a large bush block at the back of my house as this helps attract birds, especially the yellow-tailed black cockatoos.
I also have wrens and finches in the garden from time to time, but as you would understand it is terribly difficult to photograph such small birds.
Once a horrible lawn now all native plants.
The old lawn is now covered with colourful natives for most of the year.
Tawny Frogmouth stopped by for a day - a fantastic experience.

The cheeky Musk Lorikeets are regular visitors to my garden, especially when the apples are ripe!
Yellow-tailed black cockatoos frequent the trees over my back fence on a regular basis - in Riverside!
