This lovely bird knew that something was threatening and was on alert. I felt lucky to get close enough for this shot. I love to here there raucous cries when they fly overhead, but they can be very destructive in large numbers with there very strong beaks and long claws on there feet. They are also real clowns and very entertaining to watch. Eating habits are on the ground seed eaters, crops & trees for seeds. There snowy white feathers look beautiful against our blue Australian skies. Wide ranging in temperate to tropical areas. Not Central or Western Australia.
