.....of this black cockatoo pair. It was so difficult to choose which of about 100 images to post. The Driver liked this one best ;-))
I learned something watching these birds today. We have had an enormous amount of rain over the past 12 hours. Good, solid drenching rain. Wonderful. Anyway, I heard a flock of black cockatoos arrive as I was wandering the "estate" looking for my blip. A group of about 20 birds landed in the tops of a couple of trees and spread their wings and faced into the strong wind. I swear they were hanging out to dry!! They then proceeded to groom each other. Fascinating. Then, as quickly as they arrived, they were off! This pair were the last to leave. Love them ;-))
