Weerloos

Posted Monday 11th January 2010 at 23:30 by Francis Duggan
With their strong beaks for their dark seeds they shred pine cones the yellow tail black cockatoos
The huge dark brown parrots of the mountains that some refer to as weerloos
From the calls they make in communication especially whilst they are in flight
To see them in small flocks is a thing of beauty and makes for a spectacular sight
Distinctive from other cockatoos they only flock with their own kind
Amongst white cockatoos the sulphur crested and corellas a weerloo you never will find
But like all cockatoos they nest in a tree cavity though only one young they do raise
The wonderful wonders of Nature they never do cease to amaze
They are birds one does not see often and even in their range known to be rare
With other parrots it seems obvious so little in common they do share
Quite beautiful birds for to look at they call to each other in flight
A flock of dark brown weerloos of the mountains they make for a beautiful sight
By sight and by sound quite distinctive one does not see them every day
They only stay within their own group for that is their natural way.
