Red Tailed Black Cockatoo

The Red-tailed Black Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus banksii) are still feasting on the seeds of the Casuarina trees on the Nightclill Promenade. I counted 20 happily and noisily feeding this morning. The bird above is a female. In Bininj Kunwok languages of western Arnhem Land they are called Ngarnarrh.
