Klancey the cockatoo is enjoying his holiday in Mullumbimby with his pet Ned Francis. ‘We’ve had Klancey since he was three months old,’ said Ned.

Cockatoos are known to live to around 100 years old and Ned said when the time is right he will continue to live the remainder of his years with his kids. ‘He has 96 years to live,’ Ned said smiling at Klancey.

On holiday from South Australia Klancey has a cage he travels in in the car. ‘You just tell him that we’re going for a drive and he’s ready to go.’

Though Klancey only had a few words to say on the streets of Mulllum Ned commented that ‘he’s pretty hard to shut up sometimes.’

Don’t forget there might also be a cockatoo to view this Sunday in Byron from 3pm.
