Baby Red-Tailed Black-Cockatoo

By Tainia
A friend hand rears parrots, I was very fortunate to capture this baby who was so tame he snuggled into my neck when not being photographed. I'm not sure yet how to add a second image (V2)? or I'd show you an image of one fully grown and in true colours from my library.

Red-Tailed Black-Cockatoos are native parrots of Australia.

Thank you for looking. Tai

What a lovely smile.

When you add an image, go back to it. Under the description there should be a row of boxes, one of which says 'Upload versions' Click on this. There is an option to add more than one mod at a time. Ignore this as I can never get it to work. Load each mod one at a time.
