I feed one or two wild Sulphur-crested Cockatoos several time a week, this time fourteen turned up.
I would have needed a wide angle lens to fit them all in the shot.

Those beaks can crack walnuts, macadamias or any other nut for that matter

Really neat pictures! Since I'm another one who only sees these birds in cages, it's amazing to me to see them on your roof. Interesting behavior, too.
