    I hope they do too. I disagree with them that the baby wasn't beautiful. I thought he was gorgeous. Poor Mama cockatoo must have felt her life was over after that injury. Little did she know she'd still get a happily ever after.

    "Second lap running around the Lilly Pilly trees!" Just the mental image of that man trying to outrun a cockatoo to snap a picture of his fledglings is just too cute. What a great
    photo journal of those birds.

    I'm so glad every one liked this as much as I did. I think it is a more beautiful love story than that of Jack and Rose in the Titanic. Cockatoos are beautiful birds.
