Cockatoos and Rosella

 the start of a new day,  in the morning sunshine, up high in the angophora tree, a Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo

 on the roof-top; I just happened to be having a cuppa break out in the garden, with my camera alongside, when I heard this Rosella



 later in the day, raucous cockatoos with some ritual.  Lots of screeching and head bobbing...





they sure know how to get the attention

Great photos. Rosellas we don't have right around here. Cockies we do! They are fun to watch and they certainly put on a show for you.

Hi Carole,
You've been having fun with your x2 teleconverter. Those are great pics of the sulphur crested cockies. I love them, larrikins that they are.
Thanks for leaving a comment over my way, and happy to hear that you're tackling the garden now that the weather is a little better. Hope you're doing okay.
Warm regards,
Ros.

What beautiful wild birds you have in your backyard - what a treat! Love your first cockatoo view looking up at him.

Both birds are beautiful! The first photo of the Cockatoo is great with the deep blue sky and morning light. Those yellow "crowns" are very cool! The Rosella has lots of striking colors!

If only we had half as many colourful birds as you do in Aus Carole.
