BLACK COCKATOO

 

 

This one is a male and is on the ground looking for nuts from the tree to eat. He had a female with him but I didn't manage to get a photo of them together.

If he had a female with him, Aussie, he was probably looking for a little more than just nuts...Aussie males are pretty basic...
LOL at Ray, I think he is judging by his own standardstongue

Handsome bird this

What a very striking bird! Well captured, Aussie. (:o)

Wonderful was this taken near Rocky
Aussie: At Kershaw gardens not far from my place. Had gone there to take photos at Gayles grandaughters party. As we were leaving she bumped into a friend and started talking, I could see the birds under a tree and was surprised when they didn't fly straight off. Usually very timid.

Exact same colour scheme as our male red-winged starling.
Nice shot.

LOL at Ray. I figured someone would come up with something 'interesting' about nuts, Aussie. grin
Ray always says things as they are Aussie, your menfolk must have a bad reputation, this one looks quite delightful though.
Wooh! What a beauty, I've never seen one of these, not even in a zoo.
