Cockatoo fun

THREATENED SPECIES

The Forest Red-tailed Black Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus banksii naso), due to a lack of available food sources, are feeding around Mandurah, Western Australia. On this particular day they were very mischievous, and these two juvenile cockatoos were playfully fighting over this perch.
