Fitzgerald River National Park, Western Australia.

This large black cockatoo has white tail panels, white cheek patches and a short bill. It lives only in southwest Australia where large-scale clearing for farming has fragmented much of its habitat, particularly mature eucalypts such as salmon gum and wandoo that have suitable hollows for nesting.
Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoos feed on the seeds of a variety of native and introduced plant species and on insect larvae.

Endangered: Birds Australia (WA) is leading a recovery program that assists rural communities in the management of breeding populations of Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo and implementing suitable recovery actions. These recovery actions include protection of existing breeding and feeding sites, re-vegetation, the development of corridors between breeding and feeding sites, repair of old and damaged hollows and control of competitor species, such as feral bees.
