Hi Everyone Was on the old forum last year, sad things have happened recently regarding the old forum but it's good to see that this one has replaced it in more or less the same format, anyway new season starts have great tits started to build their nest in my box yesterday so cross fingers things go ok, had a good season last year.

Hello. I have no idea what I am doing, or where I should have started or how to start, really. I am old and computer illiterate - and truthfully, I am in Oz, and thought I was joining an Oz bird forum. But I might pop in here, to be pally.
I have rescued a wild corella that can't fly and was hoping to find someone with similar bird to give mine to, as a companion. Also have just taken on an unwanted hen, for rehoming. Only after I joined, did I notice English references... i just assumed if I asked for bird forums, the first ones would be same country...
One of my interests is pigeons in WW2. Sorry for dropping in on someone else's thread, feeling, overall, more than a silly twit,
I have a large number of birds here. A good 50 magpies hang about, each day and black headed ibis. I did have English sparrows here but they have disappeared with the arrival of the dreaded Indian mynah. I am told our sparrows are extra large, compared with their English cousins.
Molly! It happens to all of us I'm sure, you think you're going somewhere local & suddenly find yourself somewhere else! I'm old too & when I've been looking up Ancestors in Oz - I've got lost & had to ask my Genealogy Oz friends to help me out. Your birds sound interesting though & it's a shame you lost your English Sparrows, our birds seem to be smaller than birds everywhere else - are your pesky magpies bigger than ours as well?!
Diane - Scared of flying birds, but can handle frogs if necessary!
