Sulphur Crested Cockatoo

These birds are common where I live in Central Victoria, congregating in flocks and squawking loudly as they fly.  Very beautiful, quite large, and very destructive of crops,  timber building edges, window frames garden flowers, emerging bulbs, young growth on trees and lots more – in fact, a real nuisance.  My neighbour keeps chickens and they are attracted to the seed she feeds them, arriving early in the morning to feast.  While I dislike them for their destruction, I love watching them almost playing on the wind’s currents, and performing ridiculous acrobatics on whatever is handy.  These shots were taken early this morning.
