Red-tailed Black Cockatoos

I am having a little break from blogging this week as we have been away camping with family in the Western Australian wheatbelt over the four-day Easter break, and I'm still catching up. But I thought I might just share these few images of red-tailed black cockatoos on my family's farm in the wheatbelt.

I have found it is rather difficult to capture a pic showing the red tail, which you can only see when they are flying, so I was reasonably happy with these pics. 





and a little video


 These photos below I took in a bird park last year. Unfortunately caged birds, but you can see the detail of the red-tailed black cockatoo more closely.

  4. Beautiful pics. I love how the tails just 'pop' with colour. Very clever :) My favourite is the one of the whole troupe in flight. Lovely. I nearly crashed into someone the other day when I spotted two in a tree in Bunbury the other day - yikes! They were gorgeous!

  5. So beautiful those birds and the close up is spectacular showing off the beautiful scarlet coloured feathers. The video clip of the birds was really neat, sounds so neat. Have a wonderful weekend and I will catch up more later. Hugs~
