Glossy Black Cockatoos in SE Qld

Recently Glossy Black Cockatoos have returned to a small area of private land between Samford and Dayboro in South-east Queensland. The area is owned by conservation-aware land-owners but access is restricted, however the birds can often be seen from the roadside.

Over Easter (2019) I was fortunate to be granted access to one of these properties and was given permission to film/photograph the birds, currently I believe there are approximately 10 to 20 birds present, but they can still be difficult to locate as they are generally quiet except for the sound of their bills cracking casuarina-nuts.
