Chittering Black Cockatoo Count

Our Black Cockatoo numbers are still in decline according to this year’s results of “Great Cocky Count” which is conducted each year by Birdlife Australia.

Due to declining habitat along their traditional coastal feeding areas and nesting areas in the Wheatbelt, these birds are being forced to look at other areas for food and suitable nesting sites.  Chittering has a role to play by ensuring that we can preserve as much of their habitat as possible to sustain the existing flocks in the area and to provide for the generations to follow.

We are calling for volunteers throughout the Shire of Chittering to help us undertake our own Chittering Cocky Count. We will be recording all sightings of Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo and Forrest Red-tailed Black Cockatoos.
No special qualifications needed, just an hour of your time one day per month is all that is required. With your help, we hope to be able to map out regular feeding, foraging, roosting and nesting sites across the Shire.
