Each day brings plenty…

As I started today, I heard the most exhilarating shrill cry of a group of birds. Nick and I had long thought they were eagles as we’d see them high above. Amazingly today — I was surrounded by a group of six giant (over two feet tall) yellow tailed black cockatoos. I’m not talking about a small bird — as each one was nearly as large as Jaffa the dog. Its easy to see how they are so powerful (and sometimes destructive). They watched from above as I tended the garden. Sadly, this picture doesn’t do them justice — but here is a link to more detail.
