This Sulphur-crested Cockatoo was feeding high up in the canopy and then took flight and I managed to grab a couple of frames. Tough shots as these birds are quick and erratic, no easy straight and level flight. :-)

#2 is a full res 1600x1600 crop.

Cheers

Dennis

Cool shot of this shoveler coming in for a landing, Mark!

These are two marvelous captures of the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Dennis! I especially like the first image.

Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

Although not native to my area a pair of these Major Mitchel's were "liberated" by having their aviary wire cut and so far have defied all efforts to recapture them. They have remained local and seem to be in good nick.
