I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

These lovely creatures insisted on hanging back modestly behind the branches, as though pink birds are a common sight anywhere, and pink birds with huge orange and white crests occur anywhere except Australia and certain drug-assisted fever dreams. They're pink cockatoos, or Major Mitchell's cockatoos, and like any sensible creature in the heat and humidity of Kuranda, they preferred to remain in the shade instead of strutting and showing off their unlikely splendor in the sun so I could get a decent picture of them.

Even so, that is one impressive cockatoo. Well done, Major Mitchell!
