Hi all,

While hiking between Berowra and Mt Ku-ring-gai (well, more like a forced march, but that's another story) on Saturday I heard what I think were cockatoo calls, but not like any that I recognised. It was right on dusk (hence the forced march) and whatever the birds were, they were in amongst the sulpher-crested cockatoos that were also noisily settling for the night. I didn't get a chance to stop and look and didn't have binocs in any case.

Can anyone suggest what I might have heard? They weren't gang-gang calls, nor were they like the yellow-tailed black cockatoos that I have heard before. Neither did they sound like juvenile feeding-type calls.

Cheers, Koren
