Short-billed Black Cockatoo (Carnaby’s)

After I arrived in Perth I made the decision that I badly wanted to film Bourke’s parrot.  I missed it at Bowra Station in QLD so thought perhaps I would take a stab in the Mount Magnet area north of Perth.  What I didnt count on was the good fortune of finding a flock of Carnaby’s Black Cockatoos enroute feeding in trees right over the Highway!

The Carnabys were totally engrossed in feeding on banksia.  It seemed to me they were enjoying the toy-like shape of them as well.   The adult in the nesting hollow was actually filmed in the Stirling Mountain Range southwest of Perth.
