Description

This art print is a reproduction of an original watercolour painting by Chris Spiker.

'Carnaby's Black Cockatoo' (Calyptorhynchus latirostris

Gliding through the tree tops of the Marri and Jarrah forests or across the urban suburbs, Carnaby's Black Cockatoos screech out loudly on mass as they pursue the blossoming food source or at an evening roost. These beautiful and playful birds and under enormous pressure from the long-term destruction of their breeding and feeding habitats. The number of younger birds has diminished in recent years to an extent that breeding rates may plummet to extreme levels over the next decade. Carnaby's, like many cockatoos and parrots, rely heavily on old trees with hollows to achieve successful breeding of just one chick per year. Carnaby's Black Cockatoos pair for life, which may be 40-50 years.

Chris has captured the Carnaby's Black Cockatoos feeding on a Wandoo tree.
