Thanks very much for this notification Kirri. Your directions were spot-on and 
I found three Glossy Black-Cockatoos feeding intently  for over 2 hours. I 
stayed in the car from 4-4:30pm , hoping they would come down to drink at dusk, 
but at 4:35 saw 5 fly SE and then noticed the 3 above were gone. They feed so 

Hopefully, this attachment will go through - if so, can experts out there 
please ID the tree species? Thanks!.
