Brian King Images, asked if they actually make a barking sound. See what you think here, on Birds in Backyards there is an mp3 link in side-bar.
Major Mitchell Cockatoos
Red-tailed Black Cockatoo
Trainer had asked if anyone in the audience would like to offer a $2 coin to this Galah. They were to stand up, arm extended, with the coin in their upturned hand.
...it has just returned with the coin and handler puts it in her pocket, thank-you :)
Sulphur-crested Cockatoo obligingly picks up paper
and dumped it into the bin
A nice ending too, the woman who had donated the $2 coin was asked to stand up again and put out her hand. The Galah flew back to her and returned it.
Just an update, a reminder even
Several have commented, "I didn't know you had another blog!" ...when they've stumbled across the 'latest post' photograph for Snap Happy Online, in my side-bar.
Consider it, just another page of this blog almost ---- I reserve Snap Happy Online though, for all I love to share with you, ... just minus the birds.
Currently, the latest post here, is from The Paddington/Sydney, Reservoir Gardens, and I think you'll really be surprised at a heritage site that was transformed from once being Sydney's water supply, into this serene, public space, set down from the roadside.
I hope you'll follow me, at Snap Happy Online too.
