Fitzgerald River National Park, Western Australia.

This large black cockatoo has white tail panels, white cheek patches and a short bill. It lives only in southwest Australia where large-scale clearing for farming has fragmented much of its habitat, particularly mature eucalypts such as salmon gum and wandoo that have suitable hollows for nesting.
Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoos feed on the seeds of a variety of native and introduced plant species and on insect larvae.

Endangered: Birds Australia (WA) is leading a recovery program that assists rural communities in the management of breeding populations of Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo and implementing suitable recovery actions. These recovery actions include protection of existing breeding and feeding sites, re-vegetation, the development of corridors between breeding and feeding sites, repair of old and damaged hollows and control of competitor species, such as feral bees.

Retirement has made it possible for me to be more creative and what better way to enjoy being creative than photography!
I have been fortunate enough to have traveled around Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe and Egypt, keeping my trusty camera with me at all times.
