Art Journal Challenge - Week Fourteen...

I really liked what Emily came up with this week!!
The Prompt for this week: "birds!"

The first thing I think of when I hear the word "bird" are the Cheeky Cockatoo's that fly onto my balcony most days!! I'm not sure whether my neighbour likes me feeding them or not - many people do feed them! So I only try to feed them when I only have one Cocky visitor.. but just last month, I feed the cheeky cocky that came to visit.. and he squawked (just like as if he was calling his friends to come over) as all of a sudden we had four cockatoos on the verrandah! I was hoping that my neighbour wasn't looking!! hahaha!
The most cockatoo's we've had in one go is seven!
We also get visits from Kookaburras and Rosellas too!

Love the pictures of the birds. They are so cute. We just have cockatoos indoor (in cages) here in norway, so it is strange seeing them at your verandah, just like that...
