Red-tail Black Cockies in Rangeville

Since 1991, these magnificent birds have been annual visitors to Toowoomba and surrounds in fluctuating numbers and for varying lengths of time. The availability of fruiting White Cedar (Melia azerderach) dictate their local movements but how and to what extent is unclear.

Let's collectively get a better idea on their annual numbers, daily patterns of movement and local distribution. How far east do they venture each year? Do they ever reach Ipswich and Brisbane? Provide the date and time, number of birds, exact location, and what they were doing e.g. feeding in white cedar, roosting, flying east.

Folks,

Red-tailed Black Cockatoos heard over home, Webb Street, Toowoomba about 7.00am on the morning of 29/12/08 - my first local record of this bird for quite a while now.

Regards,
Rod Hobson
