Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are large and raucous birds. I saw this one in my parents' backyard.
Thank you, Ashutosh. They certainly are beautiful.
Awesome.!...ive only seen these birds in cage....they look better when free..
It's so much fun having a pet like this. We have one back when i was high school but unfortunately it died after 2 years.
Great photos Shanna. They can cause such destruction can't they. I worked in a zoo environment where people 'donated' their unwanted cockies. You risked your life going into the cage to clean or check anything! Trouser legs and boots were prime targets. But still a great Aussie bird that often outlives humans!
Very true, Neil. When I lived in a unit in Sydney years ago there was a mob of about 15 that would come and sit on the balcony and go off. They were nuts - they CHEWED THROUGH THE WOODEN DOOR. I foolishly tried to hang Christmas lights out there one year, and they chewed up the glass bulbs and swallowed them.
Great spotting, Shanna. Raucous doesn't half cover it.
