Hi all, 
was developing a page on the Yellow-tailed Black cockatoo on wikipedia
I have Wylah (Hunter region) and Ngaoaraa (dharawal) as aboriginal names.
Has anyne heard of other legends or names, or even ewhich specific language
Wylah comes from?
also , if I look up Mount Langi Ghiran which is supposed to mean "Home of
the Black Cockatoo", there seems to be sources saying it is both/either
Yellow or Red-tailed....
all input and references much welcomed
