Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo: Inflight nourishment

Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo > Calyptorhynchus lathami

+===================+

Part of a flock of 30 or so that are enjoying a beachside holiday among the local pines.

Beginning to wonder if they might not have nested recently while we were in lockdown, as they have quite a number of noisy young in tow.

They nest in the hollows of tall trees and there is a distinct lack of such trees in this location so perhaps they have come if for the abundance of young pinecones.
