GLOSSY BLACK-COCKATOO, CALYPTORHYNCHUS LATHAMI
A female glossy black-cockatoo, noisily eating the seeds from her favourite tree – the Casuarina (sheoak). My first and last encounter with this elusive bird. Smaller than the other black cockatoos, this was a rare sighting, as they have disappeared from the Jervis Bay area. So privileged and honoured.
