    * Pete D is quoted & my replies are inline below : Nice Pete! I liked the first 2 best. Those black ones in the
    last photo - don't see them much here. Are they those Major
    Something Cockatoos? Never seen them in the wild.

    Thanks.

    The black ones are Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos, you are thinking of the
    Major Mitchell Cockatoos, they have a bright pink crest and are otherwise
    white like the Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and are seen further inland from
    here.

    Cheers.

    If you live half way from Bega to Merimbulla it may have been but not
    otherwise.

    Cheers.
