AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Cockatoos are beautiful birds. I love your photos. Are they yours? I think it's sweet that they are sharing the food. Great capture.

Ishtar said...

Are they tame or wild? In either case, lovely! I hear they make an awful amount of noise though...

Susie of Arabia said...

Are they wild or pets? How cool! They're beautiful.

Sabine said...

Awesome captures - they look unreal LOL. But that might be because I'm not used to seeing Cockatoos sitting so casually on someone's verandah railing! ;)
