Hong Kong Cockatoos

The Yellow-crested Cockatoo is very common in Hong Kong. They are noisy and all over the place.
This group sitting on the TV aerials from my neighbours is part of a feral population developed from caged birds which were released years ago. Worldwide this cockatoo is critically endangered. The current population is estimated at less than 10,000
