Black Cockatoos

We had an unexpected surprise tonight when Phil heard the distinctive sounds of a black cockatoo.  We are used to frequent visits from the noisy local flock of sulphur crested cockatoos, have only seen a few of the black birds from far away in the mountains.  He told me to grab the camera, and we quickly ran outside to watch them.  There were four flapping around in the trees, and one of them was even feeding another.  They hung around for about ten minutes before they did a dramatic fly over and flew away.  It was so wonderful to see them from our suburban back yard!

Look how pretty their yellow feathers are!
They have such graceful flight
