'Red-tailed Black Cockatoo' (Calyptorhynchus banksii)

Glimpses of brilliant red tail feathers and the loud "karee" call are the signs of the most glamorous of the Western Australian Black Cockatoos. Sometimes called the Forest Red-tailed Black Cockatoo, this beauty os the South West travels in flocks of 10 to 30 above the trees, where they feed on the seeds of the Marri, Jarrah, Karri and Sheoak. Habitat clearing and the disappearance of suitable mature trees fro breeding, has place these beautiful birds under increasing pressure and results in less frequent sightings than in previous times. A pair of Red-tails may typically only have one offspring in a breeding season.
