I was fortunate to see a pair of Glossy Black-Cockatoo's over the weekend. We don't see them this far south, unfortunately their habitat was destroyed in the summer bush fires. A few birds have been sighted around a number of local reserves looking for food over the past couple of months, but luckily we have one reserve in our locality which have she-oaks growing, which is what they eat. Apparently these aren't the same species they usually eat, but they appear contended with the local ones.
