Wild about Wildlife Workshop: Glossy Black Cockatoo

Wild About Wildlife

Have you seen a Glossy Black Cockatoo? Don't get mixed up with other local cockatoos such as the Yellow-tailed or Red-tailed Cockatoos, although their markings can be similar. Glossy blacks love eating she-oaks but with less habitat they are becoming rarer to see.

Eric Anderson, from the Glossy Black Conservancy, will explain the signs these birds leave after they've eaten their fill of she-oaks, as well as what markings to look for, what calls they make and how you can contribute to citizen science by reporting any sightings.

After the talk, take a guided walk through the type of habitat these birds love and connect with a local community group involved in protecting this special creature.

Morning tea provided.

Adults workshop - ages 16 and over.
