Re: Some local toos

So awesome!
When we were in Perth a few years back I learned about how destructive a flock of too's could be to a tree....I'd seen it with my own eyes at home, but only ever with one! It was an impressive feat!

Re: Some local toos

Walking in to work I have had branches and pine cones drop from tread as hundreds of black cockatoos start stripping the trees down for food. And outdoor play sets like swings are prime places for shredding...

close to London. I'm actually around the corner from where the main grouping of them were believed to have been released. I can hear them in the trees around my home. I want to try and get some pictures of them at some point

Re: Some local toos

Driving though Fremantle and the park was full. Still waiting for my new galah to be hatched (possibly even laid)... but having lots of parrots and cockatoos about the place keeps us all going :-)
