High on a waterfall in the Blue Mountains, the gregarious Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus banksii) bring a noisy life to a quiet misty landscape. They tend to fly rather slowly with intermittent deep flapping wingbeats. They can live as long as 50 years and the bird’s contact call is a rolling "krur-rr" or "kree" which may carry long distances and given while flying. Its alarm is sharp. In the folklore of the Tiwi people, the red-tailed black cockatoo is said to accompany the dead to heaven.
