Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos

Chaos ensues when too many birds try and land on the same tree stump, at Grootkolk in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.  The last image shows all the birds leaving.

      These are some of the busiest and noisiest birds I’ve come across. Very useful for letting one know if there is a predator or snake close by though.

    Oh what fun photos! Living semi-rurally amongst a lot of trees I see this in a noisier fashion almost every day. We have huge flocks of large white sulphur-crested cockatoos, heavy and screeching, who all seem to want to land on the weaker top branches of many a eucalypt: oh the fights, and they also leave still arguing 🙂 ! Beautiful photo series . . .

    Definite chaos! Do you know what species of bird this was?
