Yellow-tailed black cockatoos

I stopped to watch this gorgeous pair of yellow-tailed black cockatoos in the park on the weekend.

The higher one, a juvenile, was happy to sit and whinge to be fed. Meanwhile, mum ignored the noise and carried on munching on bankisa seeds.

Well, you’ve got to take care of yourself first!

One thought on “This mum knows the score

  1. These birds are so cute, love the yellow patch on their faces. The little fellow will not miss out on a feed, his mum wont forget him. I love the fact that cockatoos choose a mate for life.
