THIS beautiful bird, a Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo, has been sitting in a tree outside my study perhaps wondering when I am going to refill the bird-feeder with some bird seed. The few times I have walked outside this afternoon the bird has squarked, perhaps asking me to “fill it!”
Meanwhile I have been posting a couple of messages at the ‘Community Home’ page.
I am now asking you, particularly if you live in the vicinity of Mittagong to have a look here, and if you are a member of the Australian Environment Foundation to have a look here.
Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos, Cacatua galerita, are very common where I live in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. It is not uncommon for a flock of perhaps 20 birds to strut about on my back lawn late in the afternoon before perching in a very tall nearby pine tree where they sleep at night.
Update, January 31
OK. In response to requests from Janama and Bernard and the Bird, I’ve filled it!
