Magnificent Palm Cockatoo, Cape York.

This week’s AG Reader Photo was taken by Jessie Price on Seisia Beach in Cape York, Queensland.
“While on a work trip to the Northern Peninsula Area at the very top of Cape York, I was very lucky to spend a morning with around 20 palm cockatoos (Probosciger aterrimus) who were breakfasting on Indian almonds along Seisia Beach,” says Jessie.
“The birds arrived just before dawn and stayed to feast on the almonds for about an hour.
They were not at all interrupted by my presence, and indeed many seemed to pose for my photos.
I expected them again the next morning, but the almonds must have been crunchier elsewhere!”

The adorable striped possum is Australia’s little secret, by Bec Crew
With its remarkable coat and strange little fingers, the striped possum is a peculiar fellow that few Australians are lucky enough to see.
THE STRIPED POSSUM (Dactylopsila trivirgata) lives in a pocket of Australia, right up in the Cape York Peninsula.
There it hides out in the rainforests and eucalypt woodlands, nestled on a bed of leaves in a cosy tree hollow or weaving among the branches as it snacks on flowers, fruits, and beetle larvae.
