The Red-tailed black cockatoo, also known as Banksian- or Banks' black cockatoo, is a large black cockatoo native to Australia and found in dry eucalyptus forests mostly to the north of Australia with some more isolated colonies in the south of the country. These birds are known to be one of the most beautiful birds in the world due to their striking plumage. The female has a fawn coloured beak and an almost starry patterning composed of many yellow dots trailing from her face down to her chest which then forms small yellow banding. She also exhibits extraordinary markings on her tail in which yellow, orange and red banding decorate the tail feathers to create a gradient sun set like appearance. The males, although not as elaborate as the females exhibit a rich red band on the tail and a slick black plumage. their beak is grey in colour.   

We perched this pair on a Sydney blue gum (Eucalyptus saligna) which is endemic to eastern Australia ranging from Sydney to Central Queensland.
