Let’s send #AustralianWildlifeWeek off with a ‘wing-flapping’ farewell with this delightful Copic marker piece featuring the iconic Sulphur Crested Cockatoo!” 🎨🦜
These feathered wonders are a true Aussie icon, known for their stunning snow-white plumage and striking yellow crests that resemble a burst of sunshine. But there’s more to these boisterous beauties than meets the eye.
Did you know that Sulphur Crested Cockatoos have incredibly powerful beaks? These beaks can crush nuts and seeds with ease, making them quite the handy tool for survival in the wild.
Cockatoos are not only a striking sight but also long-lived. In captivity, they can live for more than 70 years, making them a symbol of endurance and resilience.
And how about their reputation for being loud and boisterous? Well, it’s no exaggeration! These birds are some of the loudest in the avian world, with their calls echoing through the Australian forests. They are social creatures that love to communicate, whether it’s a friendly chat with their flock or a playful squabble.
Sulphur Crested Cockatoos are currently listed as a species of “Least Concern.” However, it’s vital that we continue to protect their habitats & ensure their future alongside the unique ecosystems they call home.
As we continue to celebrate & admire Australian Wildlife, let’s cherish these fantastic avian creatures & do our part to ensure they continue to grace our skies.
