It’s a delight to see the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos back again. Yesterday they were shrieking and swooping between the tops of the tallest gum trees, which swayed wildly from their enormous weight.
Unlike the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos, which regularly come down to the house to feed, the black cockies stay well away.
Meanwhile, this fellow made his way across the driveway this morning.
He headed up the cedar tree, only to be swoooped by the kookaburras, which didn't seem to like him invading their territory.
