Red Tail Black Cockatoo - Flight by 


I was totally in Awe as these beautiful birds flew overhead yesterday evening shooting in the Noosa Basin again.. I noticed them in the distance a few days back, with my earlier shots, and was determined to get these close. I didn’t manage to get too close unfortunately, but did snap this one.

They come here in the evenings to hang out on a small dead tree. I will get these close one day soon :) Fingers crossed they hang around for a while. They have a beautiful “sing” call, rather than the other species of cockatoo seems to be more a “squark”..

    Hi Adam stunning work beautiful colours and detail and your viewpoint?? were you levitating or just out cruising in the chopper again…………youve got a great talent for the wildlofe shot a pleasure to watch your work………cheers

  • Hehe, what I would do for a chopper! This bird was doing a spin searching for a water pool to drink from. I so badly wanted to capture the drinking, with cool reflections, but couldn’t get close.. So many snakes in the basin wetlands too.
