The birds they had were very impressive. One cockatoo is 96 years old and talks to people. She will say things like Helllo and Polly want a cracker?, and was fetching "presents" for some people. There were two parrots next to the cockatoo there to entertain as well. They could do a great imitation of a telephone ringing, or if you did a good build up to a sneeze, they would both bob their heads and sneeze with you.

I'm so glad I made it to Bonorong, and that the money I paid is going to rescuing wildlife in the area. It also just makes me more excited to go to Australia Zoo (Home of the Crocodile Hunter!) in Queensland over holiday. I can't believe that's coming up in 2 weeks! Time is really starting to fly by -- I'm almost half way done with the semester already.
More updates on Uni life soon -- cheers!
