This is a blog about my PhD project on Carnaby's cockatoo on the Swan Coastal Plain, Perth, Western Australia.
My project is titled “Roost site fidelity and resource use by Carnaby’s cockatoo on the Swan Coastal Plain”. Through this blog I would like to share with you my experiences researching Carnaby's cockatoo.
I hope you'll enjoy following my adventures.
This year seems to be a particularly good one for flowering Marri trees (Corymbia calophylla). They are in full bloom in the hills at the moment. These are a few pics from Morangup this morning. Dryandra Rd in Morangup is a good place to go to see the rare pink flowering form.
The cockatoos are busy eating seeds from the green Marri nuts. I wonder if they think they are walking on a cloud with so much Marri blossom around them?
