My world; A guest for lunch;

On Sunday a yellow crested Cockatoo flew in, said hello and wanted lunch. This bird was tame. It followed the vegetable gardener around. He could give it a pat, but it did not like me.
It was hanging around for a few hours and then suddenly took off and flew away.

  1. So do you think this bird was someone's pet, or a wild one that has learned to think that humans are not a threat?

  2. How amazing that this bird was tame! Wonderful!

  3. What a delightful lunch guest.

  4. Oh, I love it! I agree with Gaelyn, what a delightful lunch guest! What a lovely bird! And how fun!! Happy TMW!

  5. Excellent captures Titania, these are awesome.

    Have a great week

  6. Lovely shots, lovely bird.Hope he can take care of himself in the wild.

  7. You were fortunate to have such a beautiful bird come for a visit. Beautiful photos of him, too.

  8. She's adorable. You are so lucky to be visited by such a beautiful critter.

  9. A nice Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo, he obviously enjoyed your sunflower seeds. I do hope he finds his owner again.

  10. May be it wanted to be blogged about desperately. :) Lovely post!

  11. You certainly caught some great photos of your visitor. Is it normal for cockatoos to come and visit or is this a first?

  12. Wolynsky, sometimes they fly in, lots of them but they will roost on a tall tree. The tame ones, not many come to look for food. Our neighbour's son has a tame one called "Dancy" she flies around and visits us sometimes. This one might have come from the bird sanctuary, which is not that far away.

    sweet bay, my bet is it is a tame one and flew in from the bird sanctuary. We haven't had a tame one for quite a long time.

    Indrani, You could be right, as the birds are very popular in the blogosphere.

    Arija, I think he might have come from one of the bird sanctuaries.

    ewoke1993, Yes, they are beautiful and clever!

    Janie, thank your for your visit.

    Diane, I think they can. A bird sanctuary is not far from us.

    Thank you Guy for your comment.

    Thank you for your visit and comment.

    sweet bay, my bet is it was a tame one, perhaps from the bird sanctuary.

  13. How wonderful to live in a place where a tame cockatoo stops by for lunch. ;-)

  14. Da gibt es wieder so viele interessante und schöne Beiträge bei Dir liebe Titania! Hi, hiii bei uns krähen nur die Raben, also so ein Besuch von einem Cockatoo würde mir sehr gefallen und dann erst noch ein zahmer Vogel!

    Ein Schenkeli nehme ich mir mit okay? Den Beitrag oben komme ich später nochmals vorbei zum lesen.
    Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Pfingstmontag, der Sonntag ist bei Euch ja schon vorbei.
    Herzliche Grüsse
