Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo

Calyptorhynchus funereus


A large species of Cockatoo. Mostly black with feathers edged with yellow, and a distinctive yellow paneling on the tail. This is a young male as it has a pink eye ring and a smaller yellow patch on its cheek (just visible behind the pine needles)


I get a visit to my backyard by these beautiful birds once in awhile as I have a pine tree and they eat the seeds. I could hear them cracking open the seed clusters (The pine I have doesn't have cones but seed clusters just below the tips of pine needles)
