Red-tailed black cockatoo

I’d not seen one of these before. I was taking a young Canadian visitor around and showing him a bit of our beautiful countryside and bird and animal life. Healesville Sanctuary was one of the places we visited and we were told about the parrot cage. I don’t remember hearing about that before so off we went. There we saw several parrots and one in particular was very happy for attention and was a real poser as you’ll see below. I wonder if they use him in their bird shows? A female red-tailed black cockatoo was happy to perform for me too. They’re beautiful birds and very large, but unfortunately low in number in our country.

He wanted to show me his pretty tail.

This is his mate. She was a little coy.
