Cockatoo, crest up.

Taken on the Nokia this evening. Last night the two Rainbow Lorikeets visited. I was rapt! Photos are cropped a lot.

    Think it’s about time to put in a permanent bird bath.

    Am so seriously envious of you, Christine. How many creepy spiders do you get indoors, really?

      Not many creepy spiders these days, Babe. I love using surface spray on the perimeters. 😀

    Oh so awesome. They’re all such beautiful birds, I can just imagine how excited you were to have them visit. Good job getting the shots! 😀

      When I got out of bed this morning, I wandered over to the window while pulling on my t-shirt, not thinking to look first. The two lorikeets were on the fence, but they ignored me. Gone by time I got my camera though. The cockatoo always lands with his crest up, finally caught it. I had to wait ages hidden behind the stereo speaker with the phone pressed to the window! 😀

        Lol, I can just see it. Funny my guy always raises his crest when he lands too. I figured it was because he doesn’t fly a lot so when he does and lands – at which point I praise him – he’s just so excited. Maybe it’s just always an exciting thing!

          I think it is a precautionary action in case they are about to land in danger. But they look wonderful with wings out and crest up, don’t they! ❤

            It certainly is a display of both excitement in good and bad ways. Definitely gets your attention!

    Sulphur-crested cockatoos are such beautiful birds — but oh, how destructive they are in a group! I thought for ages that Tasmania was free of these beautiful pests, but somehow they seem to have made it across Bass Strait, because there’s a small(ish) flock of them hanging around the Valley 😦

      They’re more interested in the areas with crops I suppose. Once a year, they plough the ground up in front of our place when they fish for onion weed bulbs.

      I was just thinking yesterday it was rude of me not to go to your website and contact you from there. Bad manners by me, sorry. I want a freebie but not going to much effort. Will do. Thanks.
