It was just an ordinary day. Until the invasion…
We get birds where we live. Lots of them. Since we don’t have pets, the birds (and the occasional possum) provide us with entertainment. Especially when we leave food out for them. I recently discovered that the local Rainbow Lorikeets really LOVE a bit of honey on multi-grain bread. So they’d line up along our pool fence, waiting for their treat, then descend en masse. With numbers like this, no bird was going to able to get more than a beak full.
This was all good. We get a few Scaly-Breasted Lorikeets, a few honeyeaters and Noisy Miner Birds, but none of the big parrots.
Sulphur-crested Cockatoos tend to live in small flocks, maybe twenty to thirty birds. A group flying over our house must have noticed the commotion and popped in to have a look. This was the result.
