There is an almost total absence of capeweed on the local urban park.  This has been a favourite food of W Cockatoos in past years (along with another flatweed Nicki identified last June as Sheep’s Burnett).  There might be lean pickings for the cockatoo influx this Winter.  Ground-feeding cockatoos at the moment are working on thin dry roots of various other weeds and on things like fallen seeds of prunus etc
