higher learning for cockatoos

Graham has sent these in with this note:

Further to the photo of the Cockatoo’s here at the ANU’s School of Culture History and Language, here are a couple of likely fellows who take their education seriously!! This photo was taken by Roald Maliangkay, who’s office the birds are tutoring in. 😉

I work in the CBE building and they do the same thing there. I have been told its the silicon that they like to eat…

The Cockies really get stuck into the white wooden shutters on the Coombs building at ANU. I’ve seen them really tear into it.

Really cute. Have they dismantled the windows yet?

I’m wondering if it’s the AD Hope. Office owner has maybe been feeding them, pickings is pretty lean at the end of winter and the cockies get pushy and desperate. They’re also pretty bright, unfortunately, and if they think someone’s a good mark for food, they’ll do all kinds of things to get the person to feed them.
