I ventured out to one of our local gardens yesterday. The Kangaroo Paw was a popular spot for the birds, although for some reason the New Holland's preferred the red variety. Last time I was there it was the violet ones, other times its other colours, and sometimes you can get them in a variety of Kangaroo Paw colours.
