Waxeyes, blackbirds, mynas, starlings, and of course the ubiquitous sparrows, all take feed I put out.
There are also thrushes, chaffinches, goldfinches, doves, rainbow lorikeets, Tui, Ruru (morepork owls) and kingfishers which often visit the garden at different times; with herons, cormorants, mallards, Pukeko and, I'm fairly sure, the occasional scaup down at the river.
I've never actually made a list before. That seems a lovely variety!

|Is that a starling that has chased away the wax-eyes?|
|Sparrows like porridge. They believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. |
Even if it's eaten at 4 in the afternoon.
