2209 09-12-2016 12 Drummons Street, Toodyay Black Cockatoo, White-tailed (Carnaby's) We had a small family group of five Carnaby�s Black Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus latirostris) visit us in Drummond Street, Toodyay, on 9 December 2016, just after 9.30am. We had been sort of expecting them to visit the garden, because, two years ago, in November, a similar group of five found our Sea Urchin Hakea (Hakea petiolaris) to their liking. The shrub is quite near the back entrance to the house. In December 2014, I reported this first visit and a photo of one bird to Chittering Landcare, as I knew they were interested in new food sources used by these birds. Sue Metcalfe responded:
