That’s the conclusion I came to after witnessing the menu of a couple of wild, sulphur-crested cockatoos who had perched on a neighbour’s front fence.

Forget about expensive, shop-bought seed treats!

A Sunshiny Spring Day in the Park

Wildflowers by the river

Cockatoo feeding

Spring! The season for lovers, poets, and just about anyone who loves to see the renewal of life.

Spring! A time for celebration of nature’s beauty: wildflowers.

Spring! A day: today: when the white cockatoos squawked ever louder, flying higher, ever higher, then coming in to land on the branches of old gum trees. Squawking loudly: gaily raising the yellow plumage that adorns their heads. Swooping to the ground, searching for food. Delighting my eyes!

A glorious day in a native parkland, in Sydney, Australia!
