There seem to be a resident flock of 5 Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoos around the Whiskers Creek area.  They mainly seem to be feeding on the clumps of pines people have planted as windbreaks.

Most evenings (anywhere between 5.15 and 6.15pm) over the last fortnight I have observed small groups (2-8 birds) of Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoos flying over the Cotter Rd, north from Curtin into Yarralumla.


Maybe a roosting spot somewhere in there? Or just feeding in the pines?

Seem to be a lot of black cockatoos around at present - earlier this morning a group of nine flew over as I was hanging out the washing (Wanniassa) - now I've just had a group of 8 fly past my office window - I haven't noted them in Parkes previously


At Jerrabomberra Wetlands yesterday afternoon a royal spoonbill, intermediate egret, white faced heron, several dollar birds, quite a number of black fronted dotterels (adults and juveniles) and some Aust ravens paddling and obviously finding something worth eating
