Backyard Birds #3 – Sulphur Crested Cockatoos
Yesterday a small flock (seven) Sulphur Crested Cockatoos landed in the Chestnut Tree in the backyard. Of course, I was out there in a flash taking shots of these beautiful, but extremely destructive native birds. Watching them bite off any small branch that took their fancy or got in their way, I again resolved not to encourage them to visit the garden by sending my large dog out to bark at them. None the less, here are a few shots taken this morning using the 70-200mm lens. I just love the one snoozing in the early morning sunshine.
I seem to have got a little behind in acknowledging comments…….I apologise, but please know that every comment is very much appreciated – thank you for taking the time to do so.
