Artist's Description

Just a short walk from my studio at danimations, this Sulphur Crested Cockatoo was resting in the shade by the Kaurna Cultural Centre, Science Park. As we checked each other out, it raised it’s comb plumage and a gust of wind ruffled through its feathers. While the bird appears to look content in this portrait, it had a nasty open chest wound and looked a bit worse for wear. I wonder if the wound was self inflicted (ie, from pecking at mites or ticks of some sort) inflicted by other birds establishing a ‘pecking order’ or was caused by something else altogether.
