Those Wicked White Ones - i.e. Sulphur-crested Cockatoos - have been demolishing my half ripe Passionfruit again. So, when I saw this one sitting in a tree close to the Passionfruit vine I went down to watch. The Cockatoo just sat and watched me for a while, then flew off.
There were also a number of them sitting in the pine tree next door. There must have been several juveniles there because there was quite a fuss going on with the juveniles giving their harsh begging cries. They flew off before I could get close enough to work out which ones were making the begging noises and this was the only one left. I wonder if it is a juvenile?
Update: My friend with the Brown Honeyeater's nest in her yard phoned on Friday to say that she was watching out her window and had just seen two baby fledglings leaving the nest.
Update 2: Have you noticed that the photos in the last few posts have not been quite as sharp and clear as I would want them? My DSLR is away getting 'fixed' and I am back using my old Canon S2. What a difference! Hope I get the DSLR back soon!
