About the White-tailed Black Cockatoo

Also known as: Long-billed Black Cockatoo, Baudin's Black Cockatoo[

The White-tailed Black Cockatoo is a beautiful parrot endemic to south-western Australia. It is mostly dark-grey with a crest and a white patch over the ears.

This striking bird is unfortunately Endangered. The main threat it faces is habitat loss, including a critical shortage of suitable nesting sites. These parrots require trees of a specific age and deforestation from logging has shrunk their numbers significantly.

Conservation

From IUCN Red List:
The White-tailed Black Cockatoo is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2012 by BirdLife International. Despite this species having a moderately small population, only about 10% of individuals make up the breeding population, and numbers are in decline. The species is therefore listed as Endangered.
