Artist's Description

The Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo is a large cockatoo. It is easily identified by its mostly black plumage, with most body feathers edged with yellow, not visible at a distance. It has a yellow cheek patch and yellow panels on the tail. The female has a larger yellow cheek patch, pale grey eye-ring (pink in males), white upper bill (grey-black in males) and black marks in the yellow tail panels. Young birds resemble the adult female, but young males have a smaller cheek patch.

The average size is 60cm.

This was taken in my garden on Boxing Day. As I was watching this cocky eating I just couldn’t believe the strength he had in his beak to crack this green cone. He ate it just like an apple!
