The Sulpher Crested Cockatoo is one of my favourite birds. When I see a flock of them flying through the sky, or scattered in a tree somewhere- I know I am home.

I was once driving through a deep tree valley when from high in the sky one of their feathers magically fell and landed right in my path. It was a very surreal experience.

Cockatoo’s use their crest for communicating with other Cockatoos- thus they are widely known for the “messenger” qualities and encourage us to pay attention to messages in life.
These crests also cover a bald spot on top of their head- which can be considered a spiritual portal into other worlds.
These beautiful creatures also mate for life- so romantic!
