In the Wild: A Sulphur-crested Cockatoo

21 Aug

The Australian bushland is home to so many intriguing birds, not least of which is the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo.

Call them noisy, call them destructive, but in the wild these characters provide endless entertainment and interest.

Whether gliding, swooping,squawking or nesting, they tend to make their presence felt.

Here is one I snapped quite recently in our local bushland park.

    Great picture. I can’t help but love birds like these. They can make great pets for the lonely though personally I hate to see them kept in cages. As a long time budgie lover I can say the cage was great for sleeping in ( for the bird not me) and eating in, but the doors were always open to allow freedom of flight.
