Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos deft captains of kernels


Food ... the daily grind. Not always noted for tidy table manners, Red-tailed Black-Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus banksii) male (top) and female show dainty touch as they pry kernels from tough native olives.    



Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) jumps into tasty mango.


Red-backed Fairy-wren (Malurus melanocephalus) picks at possibly insect treats.

Mosura! Greetings. Wonderful to hear from you again. And you come bearing Pobblebonks, my favourite wildlife name. Why the name hasn't inspired a children's classic I cannot fathom.
Welcome, welcome.
