A Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo

On the last full day of my long weekend trip to Darwin, I rented a car and headed out to Berry Springs to visit the Territory Wildlife Park. It was only about a 45-minute drive from Darwin, but it felt like its own separate world.

I arrived just in time for the morning show at the “Flight Deck,” featuring a number of birds of prey. This pretty white guy is a sulphur-crested cockatoo. They’re rather large birds, and they’re found in wooded habitats in Australia and New Guinea.

I took this photo at the Territory Wildlife Park in Berry Springs, Northern Territory, Australia in May 2010.
