A flock of cockatoos
Lately I’ve seen groups of cockatoos together on the shore of the river baths. They seem to be thoroughly enjoying themselves– flying, swooping,landing in the branches of gums and other tall trees, and exploring the ground.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words…
Love this photo of a confident Sulphur-crested Cockatoo searching for dinner amid a flock of Corellas.
Scenes like this are often to be discovered in Cook Park, which extends along the Botany Bay Foreshores.
With delights like this to be seen relatively near the city of Sydney, why would one wish to live anywhere else; particularly with a glorious ocean beach just metres away?
A Sulphur-crested Cockatoo
Here I come!
I wonder what this Sulphur-crested Cockatoo has spied. I’m sure he has his eye on something…
Perhaps it’s a tasty treat. Or maybe, a feathered friend (or relation).
Whatever it is, his pose and expression have put a smile on my face.
I cannot help but think that this cockatoo is smiling.
His cheeky grin seems to lighten up the scene.
(I know that there’s more than one bird in the photo, but I’m guessing you’ll recognise it.)
It’s lovely to live so near to where these beautiful birds hang out.
I Wonder Where the Missus is…
I wonder where the Missus is…
Has she flown the coop?
Perched near his beautifully- hollowed nest, the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo seems to me to be thinking about his life, and his wife. 🙂
I guess he’s discovered the perils of leaving his home unattended. Potential squatters, a.k.a. Rainbow Lorikeets, are around in serious numbers.
Nevertheless, I’m pretty confident that his future is looking bright.
What *is* it?
What *is* it?
I’m guessing that this Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is considering his next move…
Certainly he’s spied something, but is worthwhile?
Is that what this cockatoo is thinking?
The more I see these enthralling creatures, the more I enjoy their company.
Australian wildlife must surely rank among the most delightful in the universe.
