Red-tailed Black Cockatoo:
Calyptorhychus banksii

  • A huge black cockatoo with red undersides to their tails.

  • It is usually seen in flocks, flying low over the horizon and calling.


  • It can be found throughout much of the continent, but is sparse, being only a little more common in the tropical woodlands of monsoonal Australia.


  • The call is a distinctive wavering, screech-like trill.
