I dropped back to the west of Mt Ainslie yesterday to check the spot where I had seen a Glossy Black-Cockatoo in a eucalypt, which I had last seen dropping down into a casuarina-like tree below the gum. The nearest neighbouring (small) trees are, I think, Drooping She-oak, Allocasuarina verticillata, carrying many cones, and the ground was littered with recently chewed cones.

Just before noon today, I saw a single Glossy Black-Cockatoo on, I think, the same tree as I saw a pair on 30 March this year - east side of  Mt Ainslie, south of the Ainslie/Majura saddle, along the powerline track, and just south of the steep gully, on the upslope side of the powerline.
