Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

The flock size you describe is breathtaking and hard to comprehend. The complex social structure of these cockatoos is amazing. That Sunny can integrate with the flock and still have an attachment to you is incredibly thought provoking.

Hi Scott!
The size of the Corella flocks really are breathtaking! And also very noisy haha! I love watching them, especially when they are hanging around in the trees..literally hanging, upside down hearing and watching them go to bed at night is incredible.

Here are some photos from his evening tonight

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

Sunny is having his first night away from home ! I usually put him to bed in his Aviary about 7pm after an hour of evening grazing in the paddocks and playing. But today I decided to get him back out at 7.30, knowing all the Corellas would be getting active for there evening feast, social time and drink before bed. After a short play with me off he soared over to the flocks, within 20 minutes the flock became a mass of a thousand birds, chatting away digging up the grass roots. I had no idea where he was, Just before dark I heard them all flying over the cottage, a sea of white in the sky, sqauwks of the hundreds. All heading to there sleeping trees just across the road. I’m sure I heard Sunny a couple of times, I called out to him so he could have the option to come back if he wanted. But alas I didn’t see him.
I hope he’s okay, and I hope he visits me in the morning to tell me all about his first sleepover.

Re: Sunny update! More photo spam!

He did! He found me this morning, swooped down and told me all about his new friends. He stayed for a while insisting on playing on his back, or sitting on my hat as I walk about peering his big nose under the peak of the hat to peck at my nose. I had to pop out so he had an afternoon siesta in his aviary. Let him back out a couple of hours ago and now he is out somewhere in a massive storm that’s just come over..he is with the huge flock So I’m sure they’ll look after him.. I do worry!

Here he is just before the arriving storm you can see approaching.
