A wild cockatoo or two

I swear it looks like he’s smiling.

Several wild cockatoos live in the rear of Manoa Valley.

Credible folklore says they are remnants of the old Paradise Park tourist attraction that featured exotic birds riding bicycles and that sort of thing until it went out of business in the 1990s.

Bruno Mars lived in a small cottage there with his father for a time, and remnants of the park were later used for sets to film the TV series “Lost.”

The cockatoos screech pretty loud, but you don’t always actually see them.  It’s a treat when you do.
