Off to the Tablelands and Beyond!

We had an extra day to  play with schedule-wise before turning in the rental, so I decided that it would be a real shame not to attempt to see one of Australia’s largest birds, the Cassowary.  I also kept hoping I would come upon some great opportunities to film Fig Parrots.

En-route to a place called Etty Bay to see Cassowaries we drove by this harvested peanut field filled with about 300 Red-tailed Black Cockatoos. They were feeding on the leftover peanut crop.  Their bugle like calls carried on the wind and were so hauntingly wild.  I was so captivated I spent hours filming them.  By the looks of things they had used this field for years because there were dozens of feathers everywhere.
