Yellow tailed Black Cockatoo

Taken early morning about a month ago in the plantation Pine forests around Mount Gambier. In the last photo the look is like "What the hell is that?"

Very fine work, getting the tail colour is excellent. Second last photo is my pick of the bunch, well done!  What were you using to capture this sequence?

Nice shots! Male and female together in shot 4, the male has the pink ring around the eye : )


Fantastic photos .... they do fly close together!

Love them all, and especially #4. Thanks for the tip on the eye ring Saturn.

They look great Rick stuff!   Great job done on keeping up with them all .Did you happen to notice them chatting to eachother as they passed overhead?  I love to listen to their quiet murmerings ..... very cute as I usually only hear their prehistoric call laugh
