Sulphur-crested Cockatoo
In Australia and New Guinea and
some of the islands of Indonesia
...raucous in large flocks.
Cacatua galerita
(L 17-22")
Pinnacle Road
Are sometimes poisoned or are
shot because of damage to crops.
Are protected by Australian
Commonwealth Law.
Now the autumn maize is growing,
Now the corn-cob fills,  
Where the Little River flowing
Winds among the hills.   
Over mountain peaks outlying
Clear against the blue  
Comes a scout in silence flying,
One white cockatoo.
