Friday, while taking some pictures of the avian residents of M.A.R.S., the sun suddenly shined just right on two of our cockatoos. Our two girls, Angel and Lilly, were out and about enjoying the afternoon here at Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary. Angel is an umbrella cockatoo. Lilly a
lesser sulfer crested cockatoo . Hopefully, if you look closely at the pictures, the eyes tell all. Their hues are as beautiful as the amber, red and gold shades of fall.
Bottom line, if you’re ever in doubt if you have a male or female cockatoo, look into their eyes. Nine out of ten times you’ll know for sure.Of course you can always wait a few years. Eventually you will know, their actions will show you.
