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.
