It's almost Christmas and the past month has been cockatoo "season" across the street, in the large trees in the park. Not just a few birds either. Hundreds of them. Maybe 300 ? It is hard to count them. But there are definitely more than 200. And you can't miss them. They are big birds and screech very loudly. A chorus of hundreds of them makes a very loud noise. They swoop around and fly fast, from tree to tree. Many will sit in a large tree, and more keep coming until the tree branches have 80 or more cockatoos on them. Lately, the grass on the way to the sports oval in the park has been littered with white feathers. Sulphur tinged white cockatoo feathers.
The cats enjoy having some feathers to sniff and bat around too.
