It would be so cool to have wild birds like that. Also possibly annoying, lol.
They're far to delightful to be annoying.
The 'hoons' of the birdworld here I think ( Silver Crazy Silver Crazy ?) are the cockatoos.. they come in great swarms making the most incredible racket and rip any fruit/flowers from things very inelegantly.
They're also very clever

Yeah..the Sulphur Crested Cockatoos are clowns..always hanging upside down off powerlines and doing crazy stuff..often drive by playing fields near me and the field is white with them.
We have lots of Corellas here but chase them off..they too destructive and chew into the woodwork on your house.

I know they can be real ratbags, but they do have a pretty unique character. :)

Cockatoos kept as pets are characters as well. Very opinionated and noisy with voicing their opinion about anything. They will naturally start dancing to music.

They are so smart..had a Galah that was given to us injured and when he got healthy again he inserted himself into the family..he was not restrained in any way and could fly of when he wanted but chose to stay with us for a year or so but he learned to imitate my mothers voice when she was calling me or my Dad that we had to resort to whistles and yodels to bypass the false calls..lol
