these banksia are yummy

Posted on Updated on

This picture of a Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo was taken at Look At Me Now Headland which is an important historic and mythological site to local Gumbaynggirr people. It is part of Moonee Beach Nature Reserve on the Coffs Coast on the NSW north coast. The pink eye ring identifies him as a male and as you can see he is thoroughly enjoying the banksia flower pods, he lives with a small flock in the she-oak and melaluca woodlands on the reserve.

If you like him you can see more pictures of the black cockatoos on the posts my latest obsession and the kings of the coast

      they are wonderful birds, they look a bit prehistoric … they certainly sound it and they have the happy cheeky personalities of cockatoos
