I'm joining up with Eileen at Saturday's Critters today. Stop by and see all the other fabulous creatures featured there. Have a wonderful Saturday!
This is a resident Salmon Crested Cockatoo at the Bloedel Conservatory located in the Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada.

As you can see in the first photo, the cockatoo was at rest and and very placid. I got several photos of him staring at me intently.
A few minutes later he was squawking loudly and putting on quite the show.
I think he enjoyed an audience of more than one. Either that or one of the children agitated him.
In any case, it was fun to see the bird in action. I wasn't quick enough to capture it hanging upside down on the branches with feathers puffed out.
