This guy is a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo for obvious reasons. This one was hanging out in my backyard. They a loud squawk and are incredibly noisy and annoying in large flocks. They are parrot like in their ability to "talk" when domesticated.

A little late to the party but I'm liking it too. Very nice capture. Is this a wild bird in your neck of the woods or a pet?
