In their hundreds, in a pine tree,
while trying to find a place for the night
the noisiest birds I have ever heard.
I have heard the above Corellas at dusk.
However, the numbers that descend on
our patch of the world are noisy enough.
make one’s nerves stand on end.
When some Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoos
(commonly known as Black Cockatoos)
first paid the farm a visit, the first I knew was a change
was the when I heard the crunching of acacia tree seeds.
While my contact with Black Cockatoos
would rate them as fairly quiet,
it was what the noise made while the fed
which created the cacophony.

The ever-present Swallow…although seldom still.
and lining the boardwalk for a morsel..
on a winter’s day.
I marvel at the Pelican’s ability to land
on these nesting boxes, without falling.
