Feathered Friends ~ Sulphur-crested CockatoosteemCreated with Sketch.

A flock of sulphur-crested cockatoos soared over the valley, landing in the pine trees to feed. They're a large white parrot that inhabits timbered areas in the Northern and Eastern parts of Australia, and Tasmania.

Its diet consists of berries, seeds, nuts and roots. It will also take handouts from humans and has become a popular caged bird, known to live up to eighty years in captivity.

They're quite noisy both sitting and flying. These birds don't migrate, staying in the same general area. Even though they are one of Australia's most popular and iconic birds, they are occasionally regarded as pests.

Oh! I could never think of them as pests! They are so beautiful!
Thanks for posting to #featheredfriends! !Tip

I know what you mean, gorgeous, but they sure are noisy!

They are noisy, but beautiful :-)))

A flock landed on the house and surrounding trees about an hour ago -- it was magical. I could see one from several metres away and they are really noisy.
