CommentOn our way home from LIghtning Ridge (NSW) we came across two flocks of these Red-tailed Black- Cockatoos. The first group had about 110 birds and the second group comprised about 60 birds. Unfortunately the sun was fairly high casting heavy shadows, but I still liked the impact of the red ,yellow and orange feathers . A magnificent bird.
