Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has successfully bred a Glossy Black Cockatoo, which we are happy to say is the first time for our Sanctuary. Our Glossy Black Cockatoo baby is now three weeks old and has a look that only a mother could love!
Breeding of the Glossy Black Cockatoo occurs every two years with a single egg laid, so to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary this little bird is a very exciting achievement. The doting parents will take care of the chick until it is around 18 months of age, of which the first 3 months is spent inside a tree hollow.
Glossy Black Cockatoos are a vulnerable species of cockatoo that have a very restricted diet feeding only from the seeds that come from the cones of the She-oak tree.
Winners announced in August via enewsletter.
