HUGE FLOCK: Social birds make themselves at home

YOU may have noticed a large flock of cockatoos hanging around Kingaroy over the past month.

The flock of yellow-crested cockatoos had taken residence in the trees around Somerset St and Pound St.

The walkway between the two roads has become speckled with white feathers as the huge flock have made themselves at home.

According to the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife, the sulphur-crested cockatoos become very social during autumn and winter.

This is after the mating season has ended and flocks of up to a hundred birds can commonly be seen together.

See the massive flock of cockatoos in the video below:
