Red-tailed Black Chooks

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.

Red-tailed Black Chooks

Folks,

Red-tailed Black Cockatoo sightings are getting very "chooky" lately. They're around Picnic Point almost daily these days; heard them over home about 11.00am again today.

There has also been a slew of Yellow-tailed Black sightings from the Toowoomba area recently.

I never tire of seeing any of the black cockies regardless.

Regards,
Rod Hobson
