Red-tailed Black Cockatoos

Red-tailed Black Cockatoos

During my travels, I have seen many, many cockatoos of different species, but never these ones before. While their yellow-tailed cousins spend time along the coast, where I had regularly had a chance to spot them, these red-tailed black cockies are residents of the outback. Funny enough, I didn't actually need to go anywhere remote to find them: while I was walking through the streets of Bourke, NSW, a hell of a lot of familiar screeching made me look up. And there they were, perched in a backyard, ready for the photo op! The female is on the left, and the male on the right.
