Default [pic] Sulphur-crested Cockatoos nesting

Braeside Park is a haven for nesting birds, particularly parrots. There is an abundance of dead trees with plenty of hollows for birds to nest in. In particular there were plenty of Rainbow Lorikeets & several Red-rumped Parrots nesting. There were also quite a few Sulphur-crested Cockatoos looking for hollows in which to nest. This cocky was keeping a close eye on me; if you look closely you can see there is another cocky, possibly its mate, scoping out the hollow.

Nice Adam. Hard bird to shoot with all that white. Nice texture to the shot.

As Scouse said, very nice detail detail retention in a white subject shot against a light background.

That's very nice. I like the yellow top on the white.
