[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Found throughout the south east of Qld, the Cacatua tenuirostris are found predominantly in numbers of 15 to 50.
Taken just before a rather large thunderstorm breezed through, my in-laws feed these and many other birds during the past few years of drought that has and still is continually compacting on our lives.

Hi nice composition.

Beautiful bird, well presented with nice details. I think you lost some details in the head area but this is not easy shot and you did good work. I have seen many of them when I was down under :)

G'day Paul,
Nice capture of this Corella. This is sharp and the central comp. works well here because of the pose.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Hi Paul,
What I do like about your photo is the detail in the highlights.
My nit is the black distractions in the corners to the left.

Very nice picture, sharp and nice posing from the bird too. ;)
It's just one thing I have to point out - it isn't a tenuirostris (eastern long-billed corella), but a little corella or bare-eyed cockatoo, Cacatua sanguinea.

The tenuirostris has more orange around the face, as well as an orange throat and a much longer beak.
