Red Tailed Black Cockatoos in Maylands


This is an image only a twitcher could love.

Distant and blurred due to urgency and early morning condensation on the lens, it shows a Red-tailed Black Cockatoo.

One of a small flock of six I spotted earlier this morning in Maylands, near the Guildford Rd-Peninusla Dr intersection.

Coupled with the sighting (and hearing) of a single specimen a couple of days ago this seems to show that there is a resident group of this now endangered species here in a central Perth suburb.

Are there any other Bird-Watchers in the area who can add to these sightings?
