About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    • No, these are wild birds that are used to humans, but still keep a little distance from them. They are usually found in flocks, and are very noisy. They are nectar feeders, so are found on flowering Australian native plants, often hanging upside down to get all the nectar from a flower. If you do get too close, they fly off. You might find a few people with them as caged breeding birds, but there are so many in the wild, around in suburbia, that there is really no need to keep them in cages. Thanks for your comment and interest in my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚
