Australia has hundreds of species of parrots and cockatoos many of which can still be seen in suburban backyards. This is an Australian ring-necked parrot known to all as a "Twenty-eight" so called because one of its calls sounds like the words "twenty-eight". I have a family of Twenty-eights living in a very large eucalyptus tree in my garden. Sadly, the loss of their habitat and the need for them to compete with other bird species for nesting areas means that they are becoming fewer in number. My picture refers to the fact that time is against them and they are dying out.
