A curious cockatoo who appeared up close on a traffic camera has delighted viewers across the world.
The bird appeared to look into the lens of the traffic cam in North Queensland, near Cairns.
The Queensland Department for Transport and Main Roads posted the footage of the bird knocking on the lens on social media
“Keep an eye out for this complete galah on the road today,” Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads wrote.
A Transport and Main Roads spokeswoman said that this isn’t the bird’s first look at this camera, saying traffic management operators occasionally “have to give the camera a jiggle to make him fly away when he chews on the camera and cables.”
