On New Year’s Eve I’m bidding good riddance to bad habits and bad company.
The innocent-looking white cockatoo will not be welcome in 2019.
I love his fluffy white feathers, his cocky yellow crest and his black eye eyeing me cheekily…
… but that big black beak of his does wreak havoc on my balcony.
I will feed the genteel lorikeets, but there will be no feast for the white beast!
I will feed them on the railing and clean it up spotlessly clean after their meal so as not to leave any trace of the enticing seeds.
Happy New Year everyone! ❤ I wish you a lot of success with your New Year’s resolutions, in case you’ve made any.

you neither chirp nor tweet.
Your laughter is much like mine,
my cackle is much like thine.
We are two sister souls,
one clad in feathers,
the other in clothes.

I wish you the best of health in 2019, Ivor. Hugs to you.
Happy New Year
Thanks a lot.
Good luck with your resolution! Happy New Years!! 💖
Thanks a lot .😀
Lol!! Still, the Cockatoo looks wonderful. How about a piece of wood he would like better than your balcony’s wood? 🧐🤔
It wouldn’t work. He’s a mean character! 😉 Once he bit me on the elbow, sneaking from behind. Anyway, he’s not coming any more. I don’t think I’ll ever again be seduced by his charm. 🙂
They are so adorable! If I had seen such a bird close-up I’d definitely paint some. Unfortunately, I have never seen them so that I could draw or paint.
Happy New Year!
I’m sure your painting would be adorable as they are. 🙂
