Baudin’s Black-Cockatoo


(Calyptorynchus baudinii)

Baudin’s Black-Cockatoo is a threatened species that is endemic to the southwest of Western Australia.


It is commonly observed foraging on the fruits of the Marri (Corymbia calophylla) as in the picture on the right.  The bird uses its long upper mandible to lever the seeds out of the Marri fruit.


It breeds in the southwest forests, laying its eggs in a large tree hollow.


Targeted surveys for Baudin’s Black-Cockatoo often involve surveying trees to look for potential breeding habitat.
