Thirsty cockatoos

There is a large flock of 200+ Carnaby's enjoying the Pingle (Banksia squarrosa) in Morangup Nature Reserve at the moment. I took this photograph on Monday as some of them came to drink from a puddle on a track.

At least one of my study birds is with the flock based on fixes from its tracking device. It is one of two remaining tracking devices that are still functioning. The other is flying around the Moore River near Woodridge.
