Before I arrived in Australia, I only ever saw these Cockatoos in pet shops. Now that Ive seem them in thier element, Im even more fond of them. They come through in big mobs at sunset, its quite a sight to see (and hear!). Lucky I had my camera with me in the garden last evening to get this quick shot. Just after this one was taken, one of my housecats attempted to pounce - thru a sliding glass door. Cockie took off like a rocket, leaving kitty to nurse a headache.
