This country is a bird-lover’s paradise. We were just driving down the road the other day, when we heard the usual rough squawks of cockatoos nearby.  But we heard a few more than usual, and they seemed really close.  Sure enough, we turned the corner, and came across a whole gathering of them! (I guess a group of parrots is called a pandemonium, but I can’t find a collective noun specifically for cockatoos.) Here’s what we saw (please excuse the shaky camerawork… it was done from the car window!)
