Black Cockatoos … becoming so rare

I love these guys. They have so much character.

The red-tailed black cockatoo is one of three black cockatoos in the South West of Australia. All three species are threatened due to land development and loss of habitat.

The endangered Carnaby’s black cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus latirostris) is one of just two species of white-tailed black cockatoo on Earth.

One of the most important means of recovery for threatened species and communities is the protection of their habitat.

  1. They’re beautiful. Difficult to imagine a land where parrots fly freely and sit preening their feathers in trees. Such a shame that they may soon only be seen in captivity.

    • Thanks. Sorry I missed your comments earlier. I was once in the Blue Mountains for a week and remember seeing so many different parrots and the magnificent black cockatoos.
