I heard the cracking of wood and Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo noises. Grabbed the Nikon and long lens and crept down the back yard. I saw 3 birds ripping pieces off the Green Wattle. I had fun getting a clear view of them due to the dead wood on the wattle and my Casuarina behind which I was hiding. See how large a hole the male has chewed in the branch? He kept an eye on me but wasn’t wary of me.
I found a wildlife exhibit at The Flamingo Resort and Casino. They have a number of resident birds, including some brown pelicans that were so tangled in fishing line they each had a broken wing that will never allow them to be released into the wild. They now are in an educational display and seem to have a pretty good life here. #flamingos#flamingo
Black and white pink flamingos. (Orange?) Day 4/7 of a fun challenge from @majesticbynature to post 7 days of black and white photos. I’m challenging @anantha_krishnan.p to the 7 day challenge which again is not a competition. I guess I’m stressing this because if it was a contest I would be in last place!
