CRIES FROM THE WOODLANDS BI202100

This subspecies of Red-tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus banksii graptogyne) has a loud, distinctive distinctive call ("karak, karak"). During the breeding season, they feed alone or in small groups, and in the non-breeding season, they feed in large groups. Their diet consists almost entirely of the seeds of three tree species. They nest in deep tree hollows in large, old eucalypts and lay one egg per breeding season. This subspecies is highly threatened, with only about 1400 individuals remaining. They are found in southwestern Victoria and southeastern South Australia, where they inhabit Stringybark and Buloke woodlands.
