Every morning I put out wild bird seed outside Lemon and Sweetie's window so they can talk to and play around the 'outside birdies'. This consists of a large flock of house sparrows and a bonded pair of pigeons my neighbour and I have named Bonnie and Clyde. Lemon is completely enamoured with the pigeons, haha!
There's also a big fat girl squirrel that comes sometimes, which causes Sweetie to puff up and act all brave for some reason! Once in a while raccoons run across the fence opposite the window but I don't think the budgies care much.

The pigeons, Bonnie and Clyde

I also feed the wild birds. Many have now become quite tame. I love watching them and my two budgies also enjoy watching them and talking to them through the door. Here are some of my local feathered friends.

Love the Bonnie and Clyde duo, my husband raised pigeons many years ago.
Blingy, you have a great assortment of native visitors.
I live very close to a forest preserve, I get deer very early in the am that come and eat just about anything I plant, rabbits, skunks, chipmunks, and squirrels come and as for birds you would think living so close to a forest preserve that I might get a good variety but its is mostly sparrows, red winged blackbirds, starlings, grackles and doves. Once in a while I will see a hawk, but only in the air, they don't come into the yard, which is fine by me because if they did it would probably be because they were trying to catch something and I don't want to see that.

I wouldn't want to see hawks going after their dinner either (or any other animal hunting for that matter). I know it's how they live, but it breaks my heart to see it (& thankfully I don't see it). We have wild deer further in the bush, as well as wild Emu but I've only seen Emu. Of course we have plenty of kangaroos, wombats, echidnas and other native wildlife. I'd so love it if we had squirrels and chipmunks. I adore hedgehogs and would love it if we could get those here too.

Nothing too exotic over here in the suburbs of Southern CA . I guess itís all relative though. If you donít have it, then it might be exotic to you lol. But nothing like Australia! I do like to see the various migratory hummingbirds though .

In the spring and summer, there is a bird species that sings loudly... AT NIGHT. Any and all hours in the middle of the night, which was surprising. Not sure what it is. Google wasnít clear, but might be mockingbirds.

Mockingbirds are definitely known for singing at all hours, Julie! I also don't get anything too exciting, around here it's mostly mockingbirds, bluebirds, robins, house sparrows, and blue jays. There's a Cooper's Hawk that lives near my apartment complex and I see him/her occasionally.
