Yellow-tailed black cockatoo

black cockatoo15

The yellow-tailed black cockatoo is one of the largest cockatoos in Australia. They are found from Central/South Eastern Queensland down to the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. In recent years, there has been a significant decline in Yellow-tailed black-cockatoo numbers. Moreover, birds have begun to inhabit urbanised areas and forage on introduced pines. Around Sydney, Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos forage in bushland, parks and golf courses on pine cones and a range of native plants, including Banksia and Hakea seeds.

UNSW are requesting help in recording sightings of these cockatoos. So if you spot any yellow-tailed black cockatoos between now and the June 2017, why not fill in their online survey?
