This ridiculous half-grown cockatoo…

From my home office window in Canberra this afternoon. One of Australia’s scruffiest baby birds (that is about half a metre in length – so not so little). What a cute mess!

Today’s Crazy Bird

Our sulphur-crested cockatoos are very cheeky, and spend a great deal of time stripping bark off all the trees and creating a huge mess!

This one came around the back this morning, to check out what the other bird species who live here were up to.

Canberra Cockatoos

Cockatoos in Canberra late this afternoon. There were dozens on the line, but only a few could fit in the shot at a time!

Evening Cockatoo

Its friend flew off, and I asked this one to turn around and look at me before it left, too.

It did.

Summer Evening in Canberra

Forgive the quality of the photograph. I was watering the garden at sunset, and this silly cockatoo watched me the whole time. I took the picture with a tablet (no camera or anything else nearby), one-handed, so it’s not very good. I think, though, you can tell it’s summer by the light – it’s so orange!
