Cockatoos in the trees

010Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.   This morning mummy was preparing some more chills to go into the dehydrator, when brother came inside and told mummy that there were some cockatoos in the big gum tree in the garden. So naturally she rushed out with the camera to take some photos  They were being very noisy and screeching like magpies. This got mummy thinking about all the other bird life that lives around Us.  Some Me and Nellie like to chase, like those naughty magpies and kereru (wood pigeons) but We never seem to be able to catch them.  They seem to fly away too fast.  Here are some photos of some of the bird-life around home.  Mummy says she didn’t take the photos, she found them on some place called Google images.

Lots and lots of peacocks live around our property.

Off Me and Nellie go.  Daddy is home and We must be there to greet him and get the love and attention that We so richly deserve.  Love Nellie and Jasper.

Mummy saw one of these funny creatures on the road to Marton.  She says that it is a donkey and Me and Nellie would not like to met one because it would make funny noises at Us.

    Neat! All we seem to have right now are noisy crows! Oh, and of course, those pesky terrorist squirrels.

    About 10 years ago, I spotted a cockatiel outside and started warning the house. He didn’t know what I was barking about and went outside. The bird flew onto his shoulder, startled Him which startled the bird and the bird flew away only to return to the shoulder again. We tried to find out where the cockatiel belonged, but nobody claimed him. We got a big cage and had him for five years until he passed. It was MY bird and I was broken hearted. They got another bird and we’ve had her for five years and I’m happy.

  4. Those birds are gorgeous. Around here there are robins for springtime, but mostly Canada geese. Mom hates them because they’re something called filthy. I like them because they leave me poop treats to eat when Mom isn’t looking.

    Love and licks,

    I hope you don’t get too many cockatoos. It never ceases to amaze me that such beautiful birds make such an awful noise!
    We get black cockatoos in the woods near us and they make a real din – fortunately too far away to disturb our rest 🙂

  6. Those are cool birds. We don’t have anything like that around here. They look like they would be fun to chase. Have a good night. Lee and Phod

    Those birds are big and very pretty. I didn’t know they sound like magpies. Daddy’s lucky to be met with your big white wagging tails.

  9. How utterly wonderful to have wild cockatoos. You guys really do have quite remarkable bird life. So beautiful and colourful. Even your pigeons are prettier
