CommentRed tailed black cockatoos were active in my area in 2020. They would often gather in dead trees before flying off to feed. This image was captured shortly after this female took off rom a tree. The image appeals because it captures the thrust of the wings used to get moving. In addition the head is visible through the wing feathers and the eye is clear and sharp.
