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)

Oh what a beauty! you're so lucky to have them flying free in your yard, and visiting you on the porch. Very cool. I love those birds. They are extremely smart. A friend's cockatoo fell in love with me last year, and it was amazing - she would crane her neck up to peer into my eyes, then curl her head on my chest, she was just too sweet.
