Field Notes - hells bells, these birds are hard to photograph! the black is such high contrast against the bright sky. have managed to snap a pic if the red tail feathers for ID tho.

5 birds gnawing on gummuts and going on inscessantly with their wheezing screetch. some birds with lighter flecked facial feathers- female?

i have noticed the red tailed cockys like the short marri trees with their abundence of gnawable nuts, whereas the white tailed species prefers the very tallest white gums.

Field Notes - x6 ducks. they gave me a wide berth as i walked along the riverbank but returned with haste when a couple of swans took it upon themselves to wander over and beg me for snacks (i had nothing). interesting that the presence of big-brother swans seemingly gives the ducks courage to approach humans.
