Australian Wildlife - Cockatoo

* D700, 28-70@70mm, f2.8, 1/750s, photoshop color correction and crop.

The shots in this gallery where the result of nothing more than luck, as during a walk on a warm summer day, I came across a whole flock foraging under the trees in St Leonards Park, and for once not a single dog walker around to scare the birds.

I have an interesting history with these birds, as at one place I used to rent, they would land on my bedroom window sill and just screech, usually at some horrible time around dawn. On the other side I used to be able to hand feed them on the balcony. From talking various people, it turns out that these things can be very distructive, just check out this youtube clip from the evening news or this NSW government page
