I looked up in surprise as the cockatoo with its wings
spread majestically, landed on the apex of the rotating
It’s bright yellow comb was open and graced its head
like a proud, red-Indian chef.
‘Hello there!’ I called up.
He then walked down one of the arms of the clothesline
until he was a mere foot away from me. I marvelled that
this wild bird was quite unperturbed.
He then walked like a trapeze artist between the pegs
holding up my jeans and peered down at me.
Wishing I had my camera phone, I decided to get it while
hoping he wouldn’t fly away.
When I returned quickly to the laundry door, I saw him
peering in at the window.
As I opened the door, he flew over to the wall. I then
decided to film him as he approached me.
Here is the video. Please watch to the end. 🤗
