Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo

With an average lifespan of 40 – 60 years, this week’s Bird Of The Week is the beautiful Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus funereus). The birds pair for life and are reliant on big old trees with natural hollows to be able to successfully nest each year. One to two eggs are laid in the hollow, and the female cockatoo incubates the eggs alone. Her mate feeds her while she is on the nest, and will also assist with raising the chicks. Usually only one chick survives, however, and this young bird will remain in the care of its parents until the next breeding season.
