A diary of my daily walks with a 7D, a cattledog and Australian birds.

I live in a rather leafy suburb, and my bit of it has especially large, old trees so sometimes I can do my birding from the couch. Today I was treated to a group of Sulphur Crested Cockatoos who were systematically removing the branches from a flowering tree. Occasionally they gave the flowers a nibble, but for the most part they seemed to be just biting off branches and dropping them on the ground.
