Regular Visitors to My Street.

Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo

These were taken back in August, 50 metres from my front door in the grass parkland that is at the end of my small street.


To visit other My Streets from around the world pop on over to the City Daily Photo Theme Day Page.

  2. I loved seeing the cockatoos and wild parrots in Australia.
    Are these white ones the birds that can make so much noise?
    Your second photo is so nice, with the birds' crests crossed.

    1. Yes very noisy Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo's indeed. I have gone back and edited the post, as I should have named the bird.
      Thanks for visiting :)

  4. If someone in the family is on Facebook go to Cockatoo Wingtag. The Gardens and some researchers at Sydney Uni. have wingtagged a bunch of these guys and are tracking them around the area to get some data on their range. People send in photos of where they found them (each one has a name) and there's a nice app to help with this.

  12. OK, there is no way we can beat this in Europe LOL! I also remember the bats in a garden in the center of Sydney... Not to mention koalas of course, but I don't suppose you have them in Sydney though (I mean as wild animals).

  16. These look so exotic to me! We certainly don't have anything like this in the wild here. Your second shot is especially wonderful.

  18. All I get are lousy squirrels who dig up my flower beds and eat all the tulips. :S
    I'd happily trade for these beauties! Nice idea for the theme day.

  19. I think Halcyon and I are both a little frustrated by squirrels. This was a beautiful sequence for the theme.

  20. I like them a lot, just so long as there are not too many at once ... they are so noisy. They love the cone on pine trees on our footpath.

  24. Thanks for visiting and kind words.

    I think my dogs would enjoy those squirrels, and Eric we do have those bats, they love our palm trees in the back yard.

    It was a joy to visit all your blogs too..

    :)
