Cockatoo



A photo I took the other day  in the backyard. I and my hubby love to chat, sky gazing and hearing the humming birds on the trees in the backyard. I found this white Cockatoo on the dying tree of our neighbor backyard.

A beautiful cockatoo indeed. We have plenty flying over our house of a morning. A bit annoying first thing, but really beautiful creatures. Enjoy your weekend.

Beautiful photos, what a thrill it must be to see a bird like that in one's backyard.

I cannot even imagine seeing one of these remarkable birds in the wild. In the US, we only see them in cages in pet stores! Once in South America, I saw a whole flock of toucans in the wild. These memories last a lifetime.

We usually only see them in a cage here. So nice to see them in the wild. Valerie

Ah, another Aussi on the blog! My daughter lives in Queensland. I love the great variety of birds in Australia. In my country the birds are not so brightly coloured. Your photos are great!

Great shot, they are pretty birds. I am happy to see they are doing well in their own environment and habitat.
