The native banksia trees are in flower again bringing the black cockatoos to feed in the nearby nature reserve. This one is a male Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo, I can tell it’s male as it has the bright pink eye ring and darker beak than the females. Both sexes have a beautiful yellow pattern on the underpart of their tail feathers which looks spectacular when in flight.

    He’s amazing, so beautiful. Margo, it just dawned on me that your blog reminds me of Noah’s Ark. Is that crazy? I was thinking, you have shown me animals I never knew existed, but they must’ve been on Noah’s Ark. I’ve never seen a cockatoo so thank you!

      that’s a nice connection and a great name for a blog! i am passionate about birds but there are so many other animals i can’t help but be diverted. i love the overseas blogs i follow that show me creatures i have never seen so i am very glad i can do the same for someone else 😀
