On Saturday the Heyfield Birdwatchers are visiting Holey Plains. I wasn't too certain which access track I wanted to use, so yesterday I ducked down to do a reconnoitre. On the way out I spotted a Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo in the top of a nearby pine tree.
When I stopped the ute to get out and have a good look, I could hear a large mob of them screeching further back in the pines. As I waited they began to fly over.
As I clicked away, I lost count of the number beyond 50. Lovely sight.
Just before I left - and the cockies were still going over - I looked into the low scrub behind me to see this guy watching. I'm not sure how long he'd been there.
All very nice, but I bet they won't be there to perform on Saturday!
