The other day I was weeding in the back native garden.


One corner is occupied by a very large Acacia Mearnsii, in full flower at present.


Suddenly, two Yellow tailed Black cockatoos attempted to land at the top of the tree and appeared, momentarily, to examine the rich flowers.


These birds are very large close up and the yellow in the tail quite impressive.


Their visit was interrupted by 2 Noisy Minors, a Magpie Lark and a Pied currawong, which, having arrived from somewhere close, and basically at the same time, drove them off.
