The Best of Times: A Cockatoo Ponders

What a Life

What a Life

Sunshine, friends, and a glorious vantage point. What more could this engaging chap ask for?

The life of a wild, sulphur-crested cockatoo has its advantages.

Just as well, for these birds are very long-lived.

And, with their comical looks and raucous cries, they certainly make their presence felt. 🙂

    I love cockatoos. I stayed at a place where cockatoos were kept in large bird aviaries. I detested the sight of these (or any) birds behind wire and became quite distressed walking past the aviaries to get to my vehicle. Sometimes I stood outside the enclosures and talked to the resident cockatoo. Sometimes I entered the cages so I could touch any that came up to me. Always cautiously though, as I’d seen one of the birds chase after and bite a bloke who had gone into the aviary to clean it 🙂 Letting them loose came to mind (yeah, naughty huh) however a caged bird would not last long in the wild I guess.

      It’s pathetic to see cockatoos caged. They are so happy in the wild, and such large birds. I understand your temptation to set them free, but you’re probably right. They may not be able to survive.

    Is this the King surveying his demesne or the watchful guard atop the battlements? He’s certainly paying attention. Such beautiful birds.
