Just before 11 am yesterday (Sunday) my wife thinks she saw a pair of glossy black cockatoos in a  casuarina  Arizona cypress (not feeding) in a garden on the corner of Mugga Way and Flinders Way, opposite the Canadian High Commissioner’s residence. Smaller than the usual black, did not see any yellow (or red), no yellow around its head. Wider, stubbier tail  than yellow tailed black, a large bill. Not a conspicuous crest. Call was a quiet mewing sound.  Wrong shape for a gang gang. Naked eye observation, but with two other walkers to confirm. Glossy black is the closest candidate from pictures in CSIRO’s Australian Bird Guide.
