Late yesterday afternoon we had a storm sweeping in – thunder, some lightening, lots of rain and some wind. The cockatoos had decided to settle in our oak and liquidamber trees and were making quite a racket as the rain got heavier. I stood underneath our verandah to watch them and their silly antics. One came in for a landing and crashed into the branch before righting himself – as you’ll see in the first few images of this collage I put together. Another struggled to stay upright on a thin branch to get the nut he wanted near the top. They were hilarious to watch.
