Artist's description:

a fairly common bird in it's chosen habitat the black cockatoo flies languid and long distances to source their favourite pine nuts from she oaks and native pines. I've seen them cruising slowly perhaps from the other side of the harbour and in numbers into the eastern suburbs of Sydney on their way to Centennial Park for example. Those in Sydney would never encounter a dangerous raptor but I've imagine a pair here who do encounter an Australian grey goshawk, also a magnificent creature big enough to take on the cockatoo.
I've placed them in a colour scheme that could represent anything really, the tops of the forest of the park in Sydney. These a yellow tailed black cockatoos and nearly the largest species of the parrot family and they live in the south east of the continent including Tasmania. The grey goshawk occupies more or less he same habitat. Both species are harbingers of a healthy environment, at least I feel better when I see them around.
