We are so lucky here to have birds in our yard all the time BUT WOW, this morning we had about every cockatoo in the district on our pool fence and roof!

Wow-well, they look beautiful..I had no idea they were so destructive..don't think I've ever seen pix of them "in the wild". They destroy wood and solar panels???

They are very attractive birds Lo. They use those beaks to rip wooden window frames to pieces and people's outside wooden decks etc. Some pools have rubber solar heating strips and they rip them off the roofs as well.

Right after I took the photo today we shooed them away!

Well here the other day it was hundreds (literally) for galahs not cockatoos. Could not see the grass but by the time I grabbed the camera they were all across the road, so not a great photo...pretty though!

What a nice pool, pity it is Winter lol

Susanne I seem to remember you saying you blocked graphics in your settings. Maybe that is why you can't see them. I can.

I did not think I would be able to see the site from the iPad, but I can see it. Yay. Great job and wow you have done so many. Gee don't know how you find the time. You are very clever. The birds are amazing when there are that many all together. Bring on the warm weather. I am so tired of the cold. I hope the days get longer soon.
