Monster birds

cockhead
Occasionally our suburb is blessed with the visitations of the very impressive Black Cockatoo.  A native bird to WA and I think it’s an endangered species (as most native animals are).  The better half loves them, and I must admit they are an impressive sight.  We managed to get some shots.

This is a good shot of a single one in the trees next door.  It was quite close and made a bit more interesting in that the tree they chose to inhabit is smaller than their normal one and it was quite weighed down by the weight of the birds.

A nice close shot of what the cockatoos are after.
