How sweet is this?

Sulphur-crested Cockatoos have a habit of bring  a smile to my face, but seldom more easily than in this photograph which was taken by the river in our local park.

The joys of living in the land of parrots…

Making Their Presence Felt

Of late, our local Cockatoos  have been keeping a low profile, but this morning they were out in force.

Don’t you think that they are the characters of parrot family?

It’s hard to beat their comical expressions and engaging mannerisms.

As a species, they are very long-lived. Those inhabiting our local park have, I believe, plenty to be happy about!

Feeding Together…

Here’s a photo taken out of the window of a club in Doll’s Point, Sydney.

Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, Corellas, pigeons and maybe more, all sharing the bounty.

Enjoy!

I wonder what Chicki is looking at?

It could be anything: sulphur-crested cockatoos, magpies, ducks. The list goes on…

Nevertheless, here she is on a ledge in the local bushland park, looking a picture of innocent interest. 🙂

I’m sure that her daily visits to the park are the highlight of her life.

Sulphur-crested cockatoos are a common but welcome sight in the local park. They certainly make their presence felt one way or another. Their looks and their calls are each highly engaging.

Here’s a photograph of a flock searching for food near the edge of the local swimming baths, on the river.

Focus on Birds: 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.

Focus on Birds: Sulphur Crested Cockatoos

Cockatoos

This week, in Australia, birds are in the news. People are urged to watch them, count their numbers, and generally acknowledge their importance in the scheme of things.

With that in mind, I thought I’d like to focus on that most engaging, comical species: Sulphur-crested Cockatoos. These are a common sight where I live, especially in the park, but also in the streets where they search out suitable trees for food. You may remember that I featured a photograph of a pair tucking into lemons on a neighbour’s tree. 🙂

This picture, though, was taken in their natural environment: bushland, by the river.

Enjoy!
