This was the sight that greeted me when I came home from work one day late last year! I grabbed the camera and took some shots – then I wondered what they might be thinking during the whole thing.
Maybe this …..
These birds are called the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita). It's quite a common bird across the top of Australia and down the eastern coast.
They’re a large white parrot with a dark grey-black bill, a distinctive sulphur-yellow crest and a yellow wash on the underside of the wings. Sexes are similar, although the female can be separated at close range by its red-brown eye (darker brown in the male).
They are a very, very noisy bird, whether they’re resting or in flight. They will stay in the same area all year round. We have a large flock of these birds living in the foothills that surround my home, so I get to see and hear these birds every day.
