I never knew I would be videoing a Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo feeding in a Coastal Banksia tree, it was just pure luck.
The truth is I had decided to take the morning off work and go for a surf. The old red Ford was in for repairs and I had to walk to the beach.
I decided to walk along the river to the ocean. I packed my bag and threw in my trusty little camera just in case.
Honestly I just can’t help myself, and new if I did not take a camera at all, a moment just like this could appear at any time.
And of course it did. I was literally only 50 metres from the North Haven river surf break when I heard the distinct call of the Black Cockatoo.
I got as close as I could to the family, but unfortunately one of the parents took the juvenile Cockatoo deeper in the brush where they could not be seen.
One of the parents stayed out to feed on the Coastal Banksia seed and I was able to capture the video above. It was my first time ever to capture this beautiful bird on camera, and I look forward hopefully to many more!
