Wonderful pictures of wonderful birds (esp. their voices:-)). Are these somewhat tame so they allow you to get near?

Thank You, yes they can be deafening. They are wild birds that know where to get a good feed during our drought. I can get about arms length close to them and one will eat out of the cup of seed I'm holding. You have to be careful though as those beaks could easily cleanly take off a mans thumb.

They can, but they can also peel the shell of a blueberry seed and eat the seed inside. I've had the somewhat smaller Orange Crested Cocatoo as pets, they did that.

(I don't know if blueberrys are familiar to Aussies and people living in tropical climates. The berrys themselveshave a diametre of7-8 mm, and one berry contains a multitude of seeds that are less than a half mm wide.)

I have those big yellow passionfruit and the cockatoos come and feed on them. One day they flew up on the neigbours roof to enjoy there feast. After finnishing one of them, one bird dropped the skin on the roof. I yelled out "dont do that, you will get me into trouble". The cockatoo picked it up again, walked over to the side and dropped it on to the lawn. Quite funny i thought. Keith
