Male Red-tailed Black Cockatoo

I just love these birds and this one was pretty cooperative. Most likely as it was in a walk in aviary so probably sick of posing for photos. I took 'a couple' ha ha ha.
Taken back when we could travel...coming again soon hopefully.

He is gorgeous. I haven't seen a red tailed black cockatoo in the wild for a long time. We see plenty of yellow tails though. I guess this chap must be in captivity

@ludwigsdiana Diana I went wild and put some money out on textures (but not much) from 2 Lil Owls studio back when they 'retired' some texture collections.
@randystreat thanks Kathy, that's what I was hoping for, so success!
@onewing OK Babs, you got me, it was in captivity this one, a walk in aviary at Alice Springs wildlife park. I did get some others 'in the wild' on that trip though and also another time up in Kakadu.

@maggiemae He was being very quiet so I can't say. They each tend to have quite a different call I've found so far.
