Karrak

Posted on September 18, 2014

This pair of Forest Red-tailed Cockatoos are from a series of paintings called “Abstract Ornithology”. Karrak is the Noongar name for this local bird species. The predominately red painting is the female and the black painting is the male. My love for native birds was fostered by my beautiful grandmother. These formerly common birds are now rare.
