AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Free entertainment
Varied cockatoo antics
Crushed cares and tensions
Screeching white winged dynamo
The knack of graceful dining

I am envious of you and your cockatoo friends!!! We have Keas over here - have yet to see any. When I do I'll try to get a photo!

I am constantly amazed by these pictures of cockatoos - and now they are like sparrows!

Oh wow! These are great. I'm luck if I get to see one in a cage somewhere. Must be wonderful to see them wild and free like that.
