Watering hole, that is. This mob of Carnaby’s Cockatoos have made a big splash at the birdbath lately! Arriving en masse twice a day, they travel out to the Nullaki in the morning and return to their “mainland” roosts in the late afternoon. They always make room for another drinker, while the little peppermint saplings sag under the weight of the big birds waiting in the queue.
It’s a reminder that providing fresh water for wildlife doesn’t go unnoticed, by the big birds, the little birds, the bees, and the occasional athletic dugite!
