In our area we have a lot of cockatoos breeding in the trees surround the farmland and in the parks. This specific type is a Long-billed Corella. I used to find them fascinating….
but after a few mornings of these huge flocks screeching over the house, I am not so enamoured anymore.
Today three flocks came flying into the park while the kids were playing. Unfortunately I saw a little of the movie “Birds” as a kid. Not a good combination. The cockatoos are fast, like little torpedos.
They all landed in the branches, calling to each other. They seem to be really social birds, though a bit rough and tumble at times.
Soon they will move on. Then I can sleep late over weekends. Oh I forgot… I guess with kids up early I will still not get to lie in!
