Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo

By Lynniesefforts  
My first ever sighting of these beautiful big black birds..I couldn't get close as they were very aware of my presence...One let out a blood curdling scream, then they all took off as one.. Great..

I have included a small variety of other birds...Noisy Mynah, Rainbow Lorikeet, House Sparrow..

The Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoo is one of six species of Black-Cockatoo in Australia. In recent years it has been in rapid decline because of native habitat clearance, with a loss of food supply and nest sites. - See more at: http://australianmuseum.net.au/Yellow-tailed-Black-Cockatoo#sthash.RAuzefIg.dpuf
Communication
The contact call is a drawn-out, distinctive "kee-ow". They may screech if alarmed. Yup...that's the one !!!!

Wow - lucky you seeing the black cockatoos - not many of those around, I've only ever seen one or two. Great set of shots and have to agree that the sparrow wins for me too - what a little cutie!
