Glossy Black Cockatoo

Calyptorhynchus lathami

The Glossy Black Cockatoo is found in small flocks in rainforest and woodlands of south-eastern Australia.

I am fortunate to have this bird as a frequent visitor to my property. Not raucous like other cockatoos, the Glossy Blacks are usually quiet except for the occasional soft call. They make their presence known by the cracking sound that they make as they process Casuarina cones for their seeds. Their distribution is limited by the presence of Casuarinas trees and suitable nesting hollows in old growth forest.
