Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo

Going for a walk along a track along the beach near Angourie, near Yamba, on the NSW north coast a YTBC suddenly dropped out of a tree in front of us, then perched high in a tree. Had my bridge camera with me and took this lot.

Thanks Dale, was unsure of sex although the yellow spot is fairly bright. Big, beautiful bird.

Love the intricate patterning of the black specks in the tail well captured in the last shot

Thanks all. This was a new tick for me and a thrill to boot.
