Look what came into my garden.......



We had a few visitors to the garden yesterday who go by the name of Yellow Cheeked Black Cockatoo's. Such beautiful big birds with a haunting cry but at the time this photo was taken they were munching their way through some of the gum tree branches and making quite a noise about it too! The branch that he or she was was munching on in the pic actually fell off this morning. We don't often get these parrots come down and visit but do often see them flying over. The photo was taken at a distance and from underneath so not giving the true size of these parrots.

I love these birds too! We were walking in the bush near home last week, and a yellow-tailed black cockatoo flew by and landed on a gum branch, staying just long enough for me to snap him (put him on my blog too). It's hard to get close enough to them at home - they're always on the move - but I love to hear their call as they go by.
Hugs, Kayzy
