AG Reader Photo of the Week: Major Mitchell

  • November 06, 2017

An encounter with one of the most striking birds.

The latest Australian Geographic Flickr group photo of the week.

Congratulations to this week's AG Flickr group member Daniel, for his image ‘Major Mitchell's Cockatoo’

“This image was taken in Western Queensland, where I spent an afternoon staking out a puddle of water in full camouflage. A number of different species came in to drink as there weren't many other water sources present. I was stoked when this girl and her partner flew in and when she stood still for a few moments with her crest up!”
