I heard the squawking, and through the mist they came.
Three Red Tailed Black Cockatoos.
They come down from the hills and perch in the tree across the road to eat the berries. It is a Red Cedar and since it has been fruiting these 3 have visited a few times.
The same thing happened last year but I have no idea if it is the same Cockatoos or different ones.
As the mist cleared I was able to get a bit closer and take a few more photos.
It is at times like these that I wish I had a super duper camera with a great big zoom lens on it.
|You can just make out the little yellow berries they are after|
For a while it was just the male turning up, then he brought another male with him and then it was his lady friend below. They are pretty tame and you can get very close to them, normally I can sit and have a cuppa right beside them while they eat.
