March - the month of destruction

Early March each year sees the neighbours' driveway looking like this:

The first time we saw it, we wondered what on earth was going on.
And then we looked up:

They're after the red berries you can see in the bottom left corner, but their sharp beaks snip off twigs and leaves and half the tree ends up on the ground. There were ten cockatoos in the one tree this evening, all happily snipping away, oblivious to the mess below. And they are gorgeous :)
