Parrot Bush

Parrot Bush n Black Cockatoo 1

We haven’t seen any Parrot Bush (Banksia sessilis) in flower yet this year, but yesterday we saw something that was even more interesting than the flowers. The Parrot Bush plants growing beside the Swan River in Mosman Park were crammed full of Carnaby’s Black Cockatoos. There must have been about 200 of these large birds, which are a threatened species. They were noisily crunching up the Parrot Bush to get at the seeds inside their woody pods.
