Were you to visit Newcastle you might get to see my backyard. Then again, you might not. If you were fortunate enough (my view) you might get to see the nesting doves that are about 1 metre from our kitchen window.
Or, perhaps you might notice the native orchids down the back or the occasional daisy. Whatever you see, I would hope that you enjoy it.
Sadly, the young chick was taken by the animal that most VTers seem to love, a cat. The amount of birds, native and otherwise, that they consume is tragic.
