I have had many types of birds over the years. As a little child my father and I had finches. We had most of the common Australian Finches and a few Bengalese and a few Java Sparrows and Diamond Doves. I have had budgies at various times over the years. Also the odd Sulphur Crested Cockatoo and Galah's and finches.
I also have and still do take in unwanted birds so I have had many different species. I have in the last few decades had budgies, cockatiels, lovebirds, Sulphur Crested, Galah's, Corella's Short Billed and Long Billed, Red Rumps, Alexandrines, Ringnecks, Superbs, Regents, Princess Parrots, the odd Rosella or two, Major Mitchell Cockatoos, Conures-Green Cheeks, Suns, Nunday, Jendays, Lorikeets-Rainbows, Scaley Breasted and Musk, Plum Heads.
At the moment I have 3 Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, 5 Short Billed Corella's, 1 Long Billed Corella, 2 Galah's, 1 Alexandrine, 4 Rainbow Lorikeets, 2 Scaley Breasted Lorikeets, 1 Princess Parrot and a 14 year old pigeon that I hand raised from 2 weeks.
Many of the birds I have had have been bought to me for hand raising, some from nests in trees that were being cut down, some found on the ground like the pigeon, others from breeders and I was paid in birds for hand raising, some I have re-homed others I have kept. At one stage I had 13 Sulphurs, 14 Galah's, 6 Short Billed Corella's, 7 Alexandrines, over 20 Rainbow Lorikeets all at the same time. I have had to cut down on the amount of birds I have because of ill health. I would just love to have my yard filled with aviaries and all different species of birds in them. Parrots are just such intelligent lovely creatures, I can never get enough of them.
