If you like watching large decorative birds eating seed, flapping around and squabbling with each other, this is the blog post for you.
As regular readers know, I shovel ever-increasing quantities of seed down the throats of whatever birds deign to visit the table on our deck. Most of the freeloaders that show up are Sulphur-crested Cockatoos (they even outnumber the pigeons!), and I've shot video of them before. But it only now occured to me that I could clamp the camera onto the table and go away.
So that's what I did.
This is before the full afternoon mob showed up, so it's relatively civilised.
Same table, most of the same cockatoos, a little further away.
And now, the afternoon rush!
It gets a bit samey toward the end, there, but I laughed every time another huge beak filled the screen, so I let it roll.
(I swear one of 'em tries to say "cock a doodle doo" at 5:44.)
