My grandfather who has lived  at Drysdale on the Bellerine Peninsula for most of his life, said to me the other day that he often gets red tailed cockatoos feeding in his pine trees from time to time. (its a great place for YTBC which can consistently be seen there at the moment).  I'm unsure if these would be red tailed black cockatoos or glossy black cockatoo's, but both are out of range according to simpson and day  - not sure what the atlas says.

Can anyone comment on which species would likely to occur in this area? Being  migrating species as Tony has commented, i guess that both are possibilities?
