Banding Endangered Carnaby's Black Cockatoo Chicks DSC_5158

We have a friend who is a black cockatoo specialist. Today Graham and I had the privilege of helping him to band and weigh Carnaby's black cockatoo chicks.
These beautiful birds are one of only two species of white tailed black cockatoos on Earth - the other is the Baudin's cockatoo. Both species are endangered and found only in the south west of Western Australia. Populations have more than halved in the last 45 years largely due to loss and fragmentation of habitat.
What a fabulous experience!

@narayani @ludwigsdiana It was fabulous. Graham has helped out before, but it's usually a "boys event". I was chuffed to be invited along :)

@pyrrhula The installation of artificial hollows in trees is helping but it may not be enough.
