Where's a good bird photographer when you need one?
Lots of Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoos filling the air with their haunting cry at the mo. They're nomadic feeders and are here for the she-oak/cassurinas and winter-flowering eucalypts which are setting seed now. Old timers say that the cry of the cockatoo is a call for rain, and we sure could do with some of that in thispart of the world.

Suphur-crested Cockatoo, flying high behind something that always attracted me. #kennethriver #australianbirds #australian_birds #australia_birds

It is unfortunate that we rarely get Fairy-wrens near our home in Cairns, they are a group I've grown to love coming from further south. This little guy, just starting to moult into his eclipse plumage, was a nice surprise last winter. He hung around close to home for a few months, and I did manage to see him earlier this year with his little harem, but just the once.
