My

Look Up, Look Down

for Week 53

~~~~~

Recently I found this Sulphur Crest Cockatoo close

enough to capture a reasonably good photo.

 It eyed me off, and decided that I would probably do him no  harm…

and decided to preen its feathers.

It reminded me of many summer nights when hundreds of cockatoos

would be noisily bidding each other ‘goodnight’

in surrounding pine trees.

After several hours of ‘goodnights’, when they were almost quiet

our neighbour would fire a shotgun either into them, or in the air,

and hundreds of cockatoos would be woken

from their almost slumber…not mention yours truly.

This one was kinda cute and it is hard to think that it was one of

hundreds which managed to spoil a quiet evening.
