The Hat Trick

Got the hat trick of black cockatoos today; Red-tailed Black Cockatoos calling over home about 11.00am then six perched Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos whilst driving down to collect Elliott traps on "Ridge Prospect" at Hell Hole where I've been working lately. This was about 12.30pm. About twenty minutes after this,while I was gathering up my traps, four Glossy Black Cockatoos flew overhead. I cannot recollect 'scoring' all three of our local black cockies within a single day; within three hours in fact. A single Wonga Pigeon also seen on the drive down to the trap-line.

And the owners of "Ridge Prospect" gave me a tray of mangos into the bargain. Not a bad day at all.

I believe that the Glossies and the Wonga are additions to out "Autumn Within - 2012 list"
