Focus on Birds: Sulphur-crested Cockatoos

Sulphur-crested Cockatoos

I was lucky to get this photo, since it isn’t every day that I spot a group of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos displaying their impressive head-gear.

This shot was taken in a bushland park suburban Sydney, N.S.W., Australia: a place where these and other parrots congregate.

Enjoy!

    Utterly fantastic. I’ve never seen the crests displayed like that. It makes them look like Carmen Miranda imitators.

      Thanks, David! They display like that now and then, but it’s quite rare for me to see a group doing it all at once. 🙂
