Is this mundane?

Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are such ubiquitous birds that their charm and beauty is easily overlooked. Imagine if you were seeing one close up for the first time – I suspect it would be a memorable experience!

  1. Agree Geoff. There is a very confiding bird that hangs around our garden and I never tire of watching it.

  3. They are wonderful intelligent birds Geoff. I have fond memories of flocks in the hundreds with noise levels at Deep Purple decibels coming in to roost near sunset at our place at Willatook between Koroit and Hamilton when I was a little kid. I also have seen them in action at Lorne and Halls Gap when staying as a tourist. In the latter cases they are very naughty, destructive girls and boys with time to kill and attention to gain. At Lorne they were bashing on the apartment door demanding food. At Halls Gap they were promising to destroy the veranda railing if not fed.
