A while ago, I did this sketch of sulphur-crested cockatoos which congregate in their hundreds at this time of year in Canberra to eat acorns. Today, on another bike ride, the unbelievable happened. A cockatoo left its busy gang and flew into my front bikewheel where it got entangled and stuck as I was flying along. I stopped, quite shocked at the sight of the squawking, flapping bird. A woman rode past, saying she couldn't possibly stop to help. Then two guys stopped and after covering the bird's head with a jacket, were able to disentangle it.
It had lost a lot of feathers but no parts seemed to be broken, so they let it go and it flew messily away, feathers awry - poor creature - I don't suppose it will do that again. I sketched this when I got home.
