New Observation & Photography Guidelines for Red-tails

New guidelines have been developed for the safe observation and photography of Red-tails.


The observation and photography guidelines for the South-eastern Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo have been developed to guide and provide important information for the ethical observation and photography of Red-tails.

Red-tails are very wary birds that can easily be distributed, particularly during the nesting season. The impacts of this disturbance can be very serious with the worst outcome being the loss of nestlings.

The following guidelines provide a list of recommendations to follow when observing and photographing nesting and feeding birds.
