In the last house we lived in, our neighbour had fed these birds twice a day for around 10 years. So there was about 300 of them all over the yard and fence 6 am and 6pm (along with cockatoos, galahs, crows, magpies, the inevitable mynahs and pigeons, etc etc) . Which was nice because they are pretty, but boy are they --noisy-- little birds! We got used to shouting over the din after a while, but it made phone calls interesting. I once told an annoying telephone canvasser that I was sorry, but i had to go because my house was currently being attacked by birds, just like in the movie, aahhhh!
And then hung up mid-sentence.
