Cockatoos dining

There's a large orange tree growing on the fence line of the units I live in, and it's sometimes raided by sulphur-crested cockatoos (Cacatua galerita). They were there again this afternoon as I was doing a little work on a cabinet out on my patio. I've neglected photographing them before, possibly because they're a bit predictable, but today I decided I may as well take a few shots. I quite like the lower two.

A fairly stereotypical shot - the displaying of the crest

I know I'm anthropomorphising, but this just seemed like a particularly contented cockatoo.

They use the next door neighbour's roof as a dining area at times, and they can squabble.
