A crackle of cockatoos..

 

The bottle brush tree in my front garden burst into flower earlier this week so it was only a matter of time before the word got around and yesterday the white tailed black Carnaby cockatoos arrived for their annual feast. As I drove home I saw them flying around above me, I had a feeling they would get home before me and I was right. It was another dreary rainy day but these guys hanging en masse like decorations on a Christmas tree was a cheery sight.. my lawn after they had had their fill was covered in discarded blooms. Messy they are but I do enjoy their visit. Btw, if you pull the collage in you will see they are in pairs, the males have pink rims around the eyes, the females grey.. go figure :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

  4. What a wonderful combination of an exotic tree being visited by exotic birds. I can see you had great fun with your camera, and I can see why you enjoyed their visit so much.

  5. Dearest Grace,
    That is quite an exotic sight!
    We do have bottle brush here but not as bright red.
    Hugs,

  6. That's amazing! Quite a crackle (is that actually a word?). We have bottle brush in our front yard, but no cockatoos. Seems like it attracts mostly hummingbirds when in bloom.

  10. As some one said " exotic view" I totally agree. Bottle brush and a beautiful scenery surrounding it with a bird so exotic will only make me feel as I'm in a dream about heaven and peace. We experience so much yet it is so less. Oh I so love it

  16. We used to have many bottle brush trees in the old Rhodie days, never had cockatoos on them though 😊 Hope all is well over there. Keep well and stay safe, Diane

  28. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
