I love birds - our home backs a National Park we get so much bird life in the trees behind our house an coming to visit our yard and venture into our street. An entire family of kookaburras, sulphur crested white cockatoos, pink and grey gullah's, magpies, ducks, blue wrens, willy wagtails, plovers ... just to name a few. We are so lucky.
Here we have a visiting white cockatoo. These guys are regular visitors to urban areas. They are a large white parrot with a distinctive sulphur-yellow crest and a yellow wash on the underside of the wings. They do make for noisy neighbours with a distinctive loud screech, ending with a slight upward inflection. They are also popular caged birds and can live up to eighty years of age in captivity.
