Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus funereus) – and Yellow Cheeks as well

These birds have yellow patches on their cheeks – and we prefer to call them the Yellow Cheeked Black Cockatoo as it is very distinctive and makes them look a bit like a clown.
They are very noisy eaters of native trees which have nuts or berries and screech to each other. Large and almost hawke like in size they are a favorite at Uccello Lane as they travel in packs and swoop then fly of to the distance.
