Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Cacatua galerita.

Anyone who has visited any of Australia's state capitals will almost certainly have seen and heard the sulphur crested cockatoo. It is a noisy, gregarious bird and it is often seen around people in parks and reserves where it will sometimes take food from willing human hands.

However, be aware that if you encourage this bird into your garden by supplementary feeding it will get very annoyed if you stop. Many an Australian householder has returned from holiday to find wooden soffits and window frames destroyed by a frustrated cockatoo.

This picture was taken close to Sydney's botanical gardens.
