Cockatoos on my fence

Nokia Lumia 530

Had six of them here before the lorikeets turned up and scared them off. I’m always amazed when that happens.

    Chap next door used to have a Cockie, always used screech F I O N A (his daughter’s name) when it was time for her to be coming home from school. Ended up giving it away to a friend with a farm.

      Grandma’s always used to screech “Rod, it’s time to get the cows!” He could whisper though, he’d sidle up to the wire and look so cute and suggest you give him a scratch. 😀

    The big fella looks like he would scare a whole flock of lorikeets away! Those are so pretty!

    It’s amazing how smaller birds can make bigger ones back off. Once had 2 crows being chased by sparrows or finches, wasn’t close enough to see what they were, was amazing how they worked together to drive them away.

      I think it’s the tenacity of the little ones, they won’t give up, and it’s hard for the crow to watch two or more attackers. It usually takes just the one lorikeet to clear the cockies.

  4. These are absolutely beautiful. I can’t imagine seeing them right outside my window. You are so fortunate.

      When I annoy them with my camera on the other side of the curtain, I tell them it’s the price they have to pay for the free feed.
