Glossy Black Cockatoo?

So this cockatoo was spotted in Camden Head in Kattang Nture Reserve. It seems to be a black cokatoo with read underparts and the only one in this region is the glossy black, can anyone confirm?

Affirmative. Juvenile Female of species.

Very similar to our (W.A) Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus banksii samueli), Juvenile Females.

East Coast R-T B.C (Calyptorhynchus banksii banksii) is restricted to further north of that location: Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo at

Glossy Black-Cockatoo range

Beautiful birds!
